Aventuras de D. João e Cebolinha, by Artur Correia, 1956

Artur Correia studied graphics in Castro before he became a lithographer in the early 1950s. At the same time, he created his first comics for various Portuguese magazines, like O Papagaio, O Camarada and O Picapau. In 1965, he turned to cartoon animation and two years later, he won the first prize for Best Publicity Film. He continued working in animation with Ricardo Neto in 1973, when they founded Topefilme. Correia became one of the big names in Portuguese cartoon animation.

His film work didn't stop him from making comics. From 1968, his work appeared in Pisca-Pisca. Eight years later, he created several comics for Fungagã da Bicharada. He restarted the series 'Aventuras de D. João e Cebolinha' In O Mosquito in 1984. This was a series which he originally made for Cavaleiro Andante in the 1950s. In the nineties, Correia devoted himself to making comic books about big football clubs, along with writer Manuel Dias.
