Pat Cbetoba, by Bozidar Veselinovic

Boža Veselinović was one of the most prominent 20th Century realistic artists from Former Yugoslavia. Born in Petrovac-on-Mlava, Serbia, he lived and worked in Belgrade for most of his life. He studied at the School of Civil Engineering and at the University of Architecture. He became a regular contributor of illustrations to the children's magazine Politikin Zabavnik in the early 1950s. In the following decades, he remained one of the key artists for this magazine. In addition, he contributed to the magazine Duga and the daily Borba.

Veselinovic also did book illustrations. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, he worked for the Belgrade publishing house Prosveta, for which he created covers and illustrations for dozens of Plave Ptica books. He was also a successful comics creator, and also wrote his own scripts. His best known comic is the historical series 'Dabisa'.

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.
