Il Quattro Elementi, by Giovanni Scolari

Giovanni Scolari started his career illustrating children's novels and doing advertising illustrations. In the 1930s, Scolari made his debut in the comic field by working for the publisher Mondadori. There, he created the science-fiction saga 'Saturno contro la Terra', on a scenario by Federico Pedrocchi.

'Saturno contro la Terra' was published in several magazines, like Paperino and Topolino. For these magazines, he continued his comic exploits with the stories 'La Galea Dalle vele d'Argento', 'L'Aquila Fulva', 'Nelle viscere della Terre' and 'La Nube di Gelo'. After World War II, Scolari had a brief return to the comic world with 'Un Uomo contro il Mondo', based on a scenario by Mario Gentilini and Cesare Zavattini.

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.
