Pulitzer Prize winner Jim Borgman is among the most respected cartoonists in America. Borgman graduated summa cum laude from Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where he is known to the community for his tenure as staff artist and editorial cartoonist for the Kenyon Collegian from 1974 to 1976. On the basis of his college cartoons, The Cincinnati Enquirer hired him in 1976 to begin work immediately following his graduation. He created 'Zits', his first comic strip, in collaboration with cartoonist Jerry Scott, who also scripts 'Baby Blues'. 'Zits' debuted in July, 1997 in more than 200 newspapers - one of the strongest comic strip introductions in years. King Features now distributes 'Zits' to 900 newspapers.

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.
