Alfred Buescher was the art director at Central Press. Between 1951 and 1957 he drew the comic strip 'Joe & Judy'. He was also the artist of the seasonal comic strip 'Eski'. The strip, written by former 'Brick Bradford' author William Ritt, appeared each December from 1951 to 1960.

Buescher and Ritt have also cooperated on a comic called 'The Story of Stalin' for King Features. The original story from 1939, drawn by Clifton Crittenden, was updated by Buescher in 1952 to Stalin's conjectured death, and was ready for use when the Soviet dictator would pass away. It is unknown if the comic was ever published.

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.
