Forte John, by Erio Nicolo (1957)

Erio Nicolo was born in Florence in 1919 and studied graphics at the Art Institute. He made his professional comics debut in 1939, in magazine Giungla! After the war, Nicolo started collaborating with writer Luigi Grecchi, on titles such as 'Forza John', 'Prince Chiomadoro', 'Karate il Lupo Bianco', 'I Laramy della Valle' and the humorous 'Superbone'. For the studio of Roy d'Ami, Nicolò created 'Battler Britton', aimed at the English market. From 1964, he worked for Bonelli on the famous series 'Tex Willer', creating around 150 stories until his death in 1983.

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.
