Fantax, by Bob Roc
Fantax - Dans le Grand Silence Blanc (#27, April 1948)

Robert Rocca was born in the area of Lyon in a family of Italian refugees. At the age of 14 he decided to become a comic artist, using the pen name Bob Roc. After World War II, he worked as an artist for comic books like 'Fantax', 'Targa', 'Marco Polo', and 'Brick le Corsaire', published by Editions du Siècle and Pierre Mouchot. He later left the field and took on several odd jobs, such as truck-driver, mover and typewriter repairer. He eventually settled in Saint Mathieu de Tréviers and began a career as an international recognised sculptor.

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.
