Williams, and took over after Williams' death in 1957. Prior to this, he had succeeded Clyde Lewis on 'Herky', which he continued until 1941. Cochran drew the 'Out Our Way' Sunday page until 1966 and the daily strip until 1975. At its height Out Our Way was syndicated in more than 700 newspapers. He also succeeded Bela Zaboly on 'Otto Honk', the companion strip for the Sunday episodes, for a couple of months in 1936.

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.
