Jorge Longaron was born in Barcelona, and began his career working as a commercial artist. In the 1940s and 1950s he was drawing comic series like 'Arsénico Lupin' in Chispa and 'Chan-Chu-Llo' in Garabatos. He was also contributing to Toray collections like 'El Pequeño Mosquetero', 'Serenata Extra', 'Hazañas Belicas' and 'Hazañas del Oeste'.

By 1969 he was hired by the Chicago Tribune and the New York News Syndicate to create a comic strip. This resulted in the 'Friday Foster' strip, about a young female photographer. 'Friday Foster' was written by Jim Lawrence and ran from 1970 to 1974. It was adapted into a feature film in 1975. Since then, Longarón has done many cover illustrations for American publications. He is also a fine artist, and specializes in painting the Catalan countryside, but also the American southwest.

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.
