Our New Age by Earl Cros
French-Canadian publication of Our New Age, 1959

Earl Cros was the original artist for the Sunday newspaper feature 'Our New Age' through Bob Hall's syndicate. The feature was written by Dr. Athelstan Spilhaus and dealt with all aspects of science and technology. Cros drew the strip from September 1958 through May 1961. By 1959 it appeared in 102 US and 19 foreign newspapers. Cros was succeeded by F.C. Felton and finally Gene Fawcette, who drew the strip until the end in 1975.

Cros was a pseudonym of American cartoonist Carl Rose, who was mainly known for his cartoons for The New Yorker which he had made since the beginning in the 1920s. He had studied at the Art Students' League and also made cartoons for Popular Science and The Saturday Evening Post, as well as illustrations for books such as Bennett Cerf's 'Try and Stop Me' and its sequel 'Shake Well Before Using'.

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.
