Roski Buntovnici, by Zdenko Svircic

Zdenko Svircic is a Croatian cartoonist and academic artist, who was born in Split. He started out painting and drawing, but he took on sculpting at age 14. He had to drop this activity during World War II, and after the War he graduated from the Academy of Plastic Arts in Zagreb. He began his comics career at the publishing house Vjesnik. His first work was in cooperation with the text writer Marcel Cukli. He specialized in realistic comics, and among his production are such titles as 'Gusari na Atlantiku' ('The Pirates of the Atlantic') and 'U Ledenoj Pustinji' ('In the Ice Desert'). Svircic left the comics field in 1967 because of his low income and the general poor situation of comics in Yugoslavia. He then began a career as an illustrator.

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.
