Los Supermachos, by Rius
Los Supermachos

Eduardo Del Rio, who used the pseudonym Ríus, worked in the trade and industry before he made his debut as a caricaturist in Ja-Ja magazine. Soon, he contributed to several weeklies and dailies, like Diario de la Tarde, Ovaciones, La Mañana, and Ojo. In 1961 he was the first foreign author to publish in the Russian Izvestia of Moscow. His first two comics series were 'Los Supermachos' and 'Los Agachados'. The revolutionary 'Supermachos' series about the mythical town San Garabato, was an example for many political comics that followed. In 'Los Agachados', Ríus continued this line of work, but this time without central characters.

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.
