comic art by Nazario

Nazario Luque Vera is considered the father of the Spanish underground comic. For ten years, he was a professor at the EGB. In 1971, he set up a collective in Barcelona with different artists and published underground comics ('El Rollo Enmascarado', 'Paupérrimus', 'Catalina', 'Purita', etc.), which led to problems with the censors and the Francoist police. He subsequently published in magazines like Star, Rock Comic, El Víbora, Bazaar, Makoki, It, Actuel, Oz, Frigidaire, Gai Pied, and L'Echo des Savanes. He has done posters and record covers (including being pirated by RCA for a Lou Reed cover). He has devoted himself to painting, his work being fantastically well-received by critics and public alike.

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.
