George Du Maurier was a famous British artist, cartoonist and novelist. He was born in Paris, but came to London to work as a chemist. His first cartoon was published by magazine Punch in 1860. He remained at the staff until his death. Among his sequential work include 'The Philosopher's Revenge'. Later in his life his eye sight failed, which led him to drop drawing and turning to writing novels. He was the grandfather of the famous British novelist Daphne Du Maurier ('Rebecca').

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.
