Sylvanna by Dawn Best

Dawn Best got her start as penciller for Archie Comics titles in the early 2000's. Her most prominent work was for 'Sonic the Hedgehog' during that time (issues 101-145). Dawn has since worked on several comic titles, acting as writer, penciller, inker and colorist. She provided inking and coloring duties for IDW's 'Womanthology', is acting penciller and inker for Chad Bonin's 'Presider', and writer/artist for her own titles, 'VARULV' and 'Daemonology'.

In 2013, Dawn and current 'Sonic' writer, Ian Flynn, launched a Kickstarter for the original series, 'Sylvanna'. The Kickstarter was successful in under 24 hours and went on to double its original funding goal. Currently, the series can be viewed online via a website which was launched with help from the funding, and the raised collateral will be used to collect the book into a printed edition at its conclusion.

In addition to comics, Dawn has served as Creative Director for a number of independent companies, is a teacher of the arts, and consults with creatives who are in need of financial and professional guidance. She lives in rural Pennsylvania with her husband, Matt.

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.
