Molly Crabapple was born Jennifer Caban in Far Rockaway, New York. She began her art career doing covers for the pornographic newspaper Screw. She has since illustrated for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Playgirl. She was at one time a regular contributor to Coagula Art Journal. She has also worked on a number of comics (often with writer John Leavitt), creating the graphic novel 'Scarlett Takes Manhattan', drawing stories for two Marvel anthologies ('Strange Tales' vol. 2 and 'Girl Comics' vol. 2), as well as providing art for the webcomics 'Backstage at Act-i-vate' and 'Puppet Makers at Zuda'. Drawing on past experience as an artist's model, Crabapple founded Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School in Brooklyn in 2005.

Series and books by Molly Crabapple in stock in the Lambiek Webshop:
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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
