Don Catarino, by Salvador Pruneda

Salvador Pruneda's first cartoons were published in El Jacobino in 1907. In 1921 El Heraldo de Mexico asked him to come up with an idea for a daily strip. 'Don Catarino' was the hilarious result. The strip ran for many years in El Heraldo, El Democrata and El Nacional. Salvador Pruneda was the recipient of numerous awards for his cartooning work and for his civic and professional contributions.

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.
