Reid Fleming, World's Toughest Milkman, by David Boswell

David Boswell grew up in London, Hamilton and Dundas, Ontario. He studied film at Oakville's Sheridan College, where he graduated in 1974. After graduating, he tried to earn a living drawing cartoons, and his first full page comic, 'Heart Break Comic' was published in The Georgia Straight. He moved to Vancouver in 1977, and in 1978, he launched the comic 'Reid Fleming, World's Toughest Milkman'.

Based on a childhood bully with the same name, Reid Fleming skirts no aggressive means to sell his dairy products. The series of underground comix was a hit, and in the 1990s Hollywood bought the rights to the screenplay, which has yet to make the silver screen. Another title David Boswell created is 'Ray-Mond'. He is also a photographer and illustrator.

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.
