comic art by Nestor Leonidez

Nestor Leonidez was an illustrator from the Philippines who was very popular from the early 1950s until the early 1990s. Learning from Nestor Redondo, Leonidez has found his own style later and did some really stunning work, like 'Devil Pig' in Pioneer Komiks and stories for Tagalog Klasiks. He also teamed up with the most popular comics writers of his time. When most of his contemporaries went to work for the US market, Leonidez kept on drawing in his native country.

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.
