Tex, by Claudio Villa

Born in Lomazzo, Claudio Villa began his comics career at the art studios of Franco Bignotti. He started out at Lug publishers as the artist of the medieval series 'Enguerrand et Nadine', as well as the science-fiction series 'Gun Gallon' (created by Lina Buffolente). In 1982, he joined the Editorial Daim Press, starting with an episode of 'Martin Mystère'. He later illustrated the covers for 'Dylan Dog' for over three years, and from 1986, he was one of the staff artists of 'Tex Willer'.

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.
