Manuel, by Rodrigo

Rodrigo is a plastic artist who was also active as an atypical comic's author for a while. One of his few works in the comic field was 'Manuel'. It was published in the oversized pages of monthly magazine La Luna de Madrid at a rate of four pages per issue between 1983 and 1985. The work originated from a Rodrigo's real experience and it told about a homosexual love story which wasn't reciprocal.

A highly experimental and anti-conventional work, 'Manuel' was reminiscent of such varied artistic trends as an almost photographic realism, expressionism, surrealism and even abstract art. A 2005 compilation of the work amounted to 140 pages since it was completed with seven other works whose origin wasn't in La Luna de Madrid. This compilation was entitled 'Manuel No Está Solo' and it was published by Sins Entido.

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.
