comic art by Celso Herminio

Celso Hermínio de Freitas Carneiro was born in Lisbon in 1871. He became one of the Portuguese Republican caricaturists who expressed his comments on the monarchy in his work. Just like his contemporary Leal da Câmara, he was suspended from the magazines where his work was published. Hermínio moved to Brazil. After his return to Portugal in 1900, he replaced Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro as illustrator for Comércio do Porto Ilustrado. Celso Herminio died in Lisbon in 1904, when he was only 33 years old.

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.
