Bill Amend first started drawing cartoons for fun when he was about nine years old, in which he liked to draw frogs and dinosaurs. He studied at Amherst College and got a Bachelor's degree in physics. His professional comics debut came in April 1988 when he was 25, with the publication of his newspaper strip 'Foxtrot', about a typical family troubled by teenage kids and a green lizard, not to mention by the antics of husband and wife. Several anthologies of this funny strip have been published since.

Series and books by Bill Amend in stock in the Lambiek Webshop:
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.
