Vampirella art by John Fantucchio

John G. Fantucchio is one of the most prominent artists of comic book fandom of the 1960s and 1970s. He provided highly detailed cover illustrations to fanzines like Rocket's Blast Comicollector (RBCC), The Collector, The Buyer's Guide for Comic's Fandom, Fantastic Fanzine and Comic Crusader, and even his autograph was a piece of art. In 1970, Fantucchio also drew two stories for the Warren horror magazines Vampirella and Creepy.

His later work is executed from a wide variety of media on various surfaces, varying from realistically rendered portraits, paintings and murals, comic book oriented illustrations or even three dimensional abstracts. He has also taught art classes in Virginia.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
