Mother Goose In A New Dress, by Driscoll

Born in Nosha Falls, Kansas, DeVoss Woodward Driscoll drew cartoons and wrote features for several large newspapers. For several months in 1904 and 1905, he drew nearly all of the comic strips for the St. Louis Globe-Democrat Sunday comic section. He is the creator of such comics and characters as 'Hungry Hal', 'The Chubbies', 'Jack of All Jobs', 'If Papa Was a Boy', 'Mother Goose in a New Dress', and 'Der Kidders und der Colonel'. The features 'The Chubbies' and 'Hungry Hall' stood out for their detailed full-page lay-outs. Driscoll left newspapers to work as an advertising copy writer for National Cash Register in Dayton, Ohio, and later became manager of the Pyramid Film Company.

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.
