Arako, by Benito Naselli

Benito "Benny" Naselli, a pupil of Gallieno Ferri, began his career working as a writer/artist on series like 'Tom Tom' and 'Kid Colorado' for the French publisher Pierre Mouchot in the early 1950s. In 1958 and 1959, he drew the masked character 'Ariol' for publisher Ezio Borghesi. During the 1960s, he worked as a cartoonist for newspapers from Genoa. In 1974, he became an inker at the Staff di If, and took over 'Qui Commissario Norton' in Il Monello. In 1975, he briefly inked 'Davy Crockett' for Edinational. After inking several episodes of Wilson Vieira's 'Il Piccolo Ranger' (1980-82), he went to work for Telefumetto, inking 'Remy' and 'Golzinga'. In 1982 and 1983, he wrote and drew 'Arako', published by Lo Vecchio.

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.
