Libico Maraja was one of Italy's top post-War illustrators. Born in Bellinzona, Svizzera, Maraja studied in Lugano and began his career working for the Ala studios. In 1940, he moved to Berlin, where he cooperated with IMA Film, among others of the animated film 'La Rosa di Bagdad'. After the war, he became wellknown for his book illustrations for 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', 'Pinocchio', 'Peter Pan', and many other classics. Between 1946 and 1949, he had a brief appearance in comics, when he made stories like 'La Quercia Maledetta' ('Dottor Faust') and 'Un mondo in un albero' with Federico Pedrocchi for Topolino (Mondadori).

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.
