In the 1960s, Pizarro was present in agencies like Ibergraf with 'Drake & Drake' and magazines like Chío with 'Profesor Hildegard', 'Los Hombres del Volante' and 'Sportman II'. He then published in Gaceta Junior ('Las Andanzas de Lita y Alicia', 1970), Trinca ('La Pandilla Trinca', 1970), Gente Menuda ('Pipa y Pilonga', 1976), Piñón ('Klaxon', 1977) and El Cuca, the supplement of the Madrid newspaper Pueblo ('Slap', 'Rosa la Revoltosa', 'Johnny Sobre Ruedas', 1971).

In addition, Pizarro did agency work for foreign publications such as the British magazine Eagle, as well as the Warren magazines in the US. About the mid 1980s he sadly lost his sight, which forced him to stop working as an artist.

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.
