The Stone Age - Battle of the Century (Funny Pages volume 1, issue 7, 1936)

Victor J. Dowling was an American comic book artist from New York. He was active in the field as early as the second half of the 1930s, when he made features like 'The Age of Stone', 'Bailey of the Tropics', 'Windy Parks' and 'Wings of Crime' for Centaur Comics. He spent the 1940s drawing for Feature Comics and did his final comic book work in the early 1950s, when he contributed to the Atlas mystery titles 'Adventures into Terror', 'Adventures into Weird Worlds' and 'Uncanny Tales'. Dowling has also illustrated books, including Alan Villiers' 'Joey Goes To Sea' (1939) and George Freedley's 'Mr Cat' (1960).

Victor Dowling presumably passed away in the early 1960s in Hudson, New York. However, there was also a Victor Dowling from New York, Bronx County, who lived from 6 June 1906 until 1 May 1978.

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.
