Comic art by Georgeta Pusztai

After graduating from the Nicolae Grigorescu Institute of Plastic Arts, Irina Georgeta Pusztai​ started making cover illustrations, especially for the publishing house Meridiane. She was then asked by writer and architect Kos Karoly (1883-1977) to make a comic adaptation of his historical novel 'Varju Nemzetseg'. The book was published in 1976 by Ion Creangă and it has remained the artist's sole comic to date.

Pusztai and her husband emigrated to Switzerland in 1981, and settled in Montréal, Canada, three years later. She has continued to work as an artist for advertisements and publishers, and her paintings have been regularly exhibited in Europe and Canada. Her work has been featured in the magazine Graphis on several occasions.

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.
