Virgilio Muzzi began to draw comics in 1945, after being educated as a painter by Groppi. He illustrated several albums and covers of the publishing house Universo. Muzzi drew episodes with 'Il Cavaliere Nero' and 'Lotta nell'Ombra' for Gianluigi Bonelli in the magazine Audace. He began foreign collaborations in 1951. He drew several covers for the Brazilian Eneanto, and comics for Amalgamated Press from 1956. For Italy, Muzzi drew the 'Cagliostro' series for Dardo publishers. He became a staff artist on Bonelli's 'Tex' in 1960.

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.
