After a short interlude working in cinema, he returned to comics with 'Maghella', published initially in Menelik and later in its own publication at Ediperiodici. The texts of this erotic comic were written by F. Arrasich. Leonetti eventually founded the Dino Leonetti studios, where artists like Roberto De Angelis and Giuseppe Barbati made their debuts. In 1975, Leonetti illustrated several volumes in the collection 'Storia di Roma' and was present in Corrier Boy with 'Flower' and 'Marshall Jim'. He also made 'Welcome to Rome' in Il Messagero'. In the 1980s, he cooperated with the female magazines Ragazza and Cioè. He passed away in Rome in 2006.

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.
