Overboard, by Chip Dunham

Robert John "Chip" Dunham was born in Wisconsin and started his comics career in his early twenties. His first work was published in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Sunday magazine. After several rejections by The New Yorker though, he gave up comics and started studying journalism at the University of Wisconsin, where he graduated in 1980. After a year as a reporter, he made another career switch and became a house painter. In 1989 he finally came back to his first love, and created the newspaper strip 'Overboard'. It became so popular that it received a nomination for Best Comic Strip in 1993. Chip Dunham lives and works in Beverly Hills, Michigan.

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.
