Potemkin Padu
'Potemkin' Zona 84 #75 (August, 1990)

Catalan artist Padu was trained at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. He contributed comics to Taka de Tinta, a magazine published by this school in the mid 1980s. He also published a couple of short stories in Rambla Quincenal in 1984. He undertook a more ambitious project when he joined writer Oscaraibar to do the science fiction series 'Potemkin'. This was serialized in ten parts which appeared between the December 1989 issue and the October 1990 issue of monthly magazine Zona 84, published by Toutain. In 1993 Padu collaborated with Manel Fontdevila and Pep Brocal on the creation of magazine Mr. Brain, published by Camaleón Ediciones.

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.
