Fanny Y. Cory was one of the first female comic artists in America. She started her career in illuatrating and creating comics in the early 1900s, but she abandoned her art in 1913 to devote herself to family life on a ranch in Montana. In 1916, she briefly resumed her comics by creating 'Ben Bolt', and in 1925, when she needed the money to put her daughter through college, she took up her career permanently.

Little Miss Muffet, by Fanny Cory

She came up with the one-panel cartoon 'Other People's Children' (1925), and later with 'Sonny Sayings' (1926) and 'Little Miss Muffet' (1935). This last strip, about an orphan girl closely resembling Shirley Temple, ran for 21 years until Fanny Y. Cory retired at age 76. Her failing eyesight did not prevent her from continuing painting. She died in 1972, at the age of 95.

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.
