Condorito by Pepo
Condorito #1 (1955)

René Rios Boettiger, who used the pseudonym of Pepo, briefly studied medicins, but eventually switched to fine arts. In 1932, he went to work in humorous illustration. For over twenty years, he was one of the main collaborators of the satirical magazine Topaze. He created the strip 'Condorito' for the magazine Okey in 1949. The strip still enjoys a great popularity today throughout Latin America. After having worked on the strip on his own during the first years, Pepo eventually assembled several assistants around him.

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.
