Boofhead, by R. B. ClarkBoofhead, by R. B. Clark

R. B. Clark, or Bob Clark, was the artist of the daily comic strip 'Boofhead', that ran in Sydney's Daily Mirror from 1941 until its creator's death in 1970. The strips were also reprinted in comic books. The popularity of the character led to a statue in a park at Leura in the Blue Mountains and to the popularization of the phrase "boofhead", which means a bit slow, clumsy and unthinking lad.

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.
