Dick Dorgan was an American newspaper artist from the 1920s. He drew the daily panel about the boxer 'Kid Dugan' in the 1920s. He also produced the daily panel 'Mr Gilfeather', which was syndicated by Associated Press Feature Service and appeared in about 80 newspapers. Andy Capp was hired to continue the feature after Dorgan abadoned his job on the comic in 1927. Dorgan also continued the comic strip 'You Know Me Al', created by Will B. Johnstone (text by Ring Lardner).

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.
