American Splendor, by Gary Dumm 1978

Gary Dumm is especially known as the comic artist who has worked together with famous comics writer Harvey Pekar. Already in the late 1970s, Dumm did the artwork on Pekar's stories in 'American Splendor' (together with R. Crumb, G. Budgett and others). Today still, the fruit of their collaboration can be seen in projects such as 'Dennis McGee'. Gary Dumm has also teamed up with Joe Zabel on 'Dancing With Your Eyes Closed' and 'Trespassers', among others.

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.
