Tipitón y su loro
Niko Lürsen was a Cuban cartoonist and the creator of 'Tipitón y su loro'. The strip ran in the comics supplement of the newspaper Información in the late 1950s. The artist also worked for the satirical paper Zig-Zag, that took a stand against the Cuban Revolution. When the magazine closed its doors in May 1960, Lürsen, just like future MAD contributor Antonio Prohias, fled the country and settled in the USA.

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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
