No Messing with Rupert, by Oscar Zarate

Oscar Zarate has been an admirer of artists like Hugo Pratt, Milton Caniff, Frank Robbins and Bob Schoenke since his youth. He decided to become a very famous comic artist. He studied architecture and worked in advertisement before he left Argentina and moved to Europe. Zarate illustrated some children's books and made the comic adaptations 'Lenin for Beginners', 'Freud for Beginners', and 'Faustus'. After creating some short stories for several European magazines like Crisis! (stories with Carlos Sampayo), he made the popular comic 'A Small Killing' with writer Alan Moore.

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.
