Santiago Martín Salvador started drawing as a teen. He drew for the juvenile magazine Baladín in the 1950s and the comic book Chicos, for which he created the western 'Mendoza Colt'. He went to work for Josep Toutain's Selecciones Illustradas agency, where he did 'Robin Hood', 'Dick Daring' and numerous war stories for foreign publications, as well as contributions to the American horror magazine Creepy. In 1969 he became the main artist on the European comic book based on Leslie Charteris' The Saint, but he also continued working on other series like 'Dick Turpin' (with Victor Mora) and 'James Bond'.

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.
