Brain Capers, by Mario Hernandez

Mario Hernandez grew up in Oxnard, California, as the eldest of four brothers and one sister. He was the first to discover comic books, and he was the initiator of the alternative comic book Love & Rockets, which he launched with his brothers Gilbert and Jaime in 1982. Mario contributed to many of the first issues. His solo comic, 'Brain Capers', was published by Fantagraphics in 1993. He has also contributed to such anthologies as Angela Bocage's Real Girl. In 2001, the three brothers reunited to begin Love and Rockets Vol. II.

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.
