Lansing "Lang" Campbell was the artist of 'Uncle Wiggily's Adventures', which started in 1910 and was written by Howard R. Garis. Originally called 'Uncle Wiggily's Bedtime Stories', the comic about an elderly rabbit was presented with the text in boxes underneath the pictures. This form was relinquished in 1925, and replaced with the use of word balloons. In the early 1930s, Campbell created a few strips of his own: 'Piggy Pigtail', 'Paddy the Pup', 'Dippy Doodlebug', 'Bizzy Izzy Humbug', 'The Dinky Ducklings', 'Duck and Applesauce' and 'Dicky Bird's Diary'. Suzanne Shaub is currently writing a book on Campbell's life and work.

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.
