comic art by Manuel Gustavo Bordalo Pinheiro

Manuel Gustavo Bordalo Pinheiro is the son of Portuguese comic pioneer Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro. Although a talented artist, he wasn't the genius his father was. He made his debut in Os Pontos nos ii, a magazine published by his father. Apart from being a caricaturist, cartoonist and poster designer, he was also a ceramic artist. Although he was successful as an illustrator in magazines like A Paródia, O António Maria and O Gafanhoto, Manuel felt that his future was in pottery, so he stopped his activities as an illustrator.

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.
