El Huinca, by Enrique Rapela

Enrique Rapela was an Argentine cartoonist, born in Mercedes in 1911. He started his drawing career in 1937, publishing a series of illustrations in the magazine El Tony. All his comic creations were inspired by the folklore and the characters common to his native land. One of these was 'Cirilo El Audaz' ('Cirilo the Bold').

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.
