Globi by Werner Büchi
Globi, der kühne Erfinder (1977)

Zürich-born artist Werner Büchi drew the 'Globi' books after the death of the character's creator, Robert Lips. After a period of heavy criticism from educators and child psychologists regarding the character's alleged racism and sexism, Büchi was the first to turn the tide, starting with the 1975 book 'Globis Glanz-Idee: Kampf dem Lärm und Schmutz!'. Büchi was succeeded by Peter Heinzer after five years.

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.
