The Adventures of William Mug, by Zif Dunstan (1913)

Zif Dunstan was one of the pioneers of Australian comics and a staff artist of the International Socialist. He was the author of the comic strip 'The Adventures of William Mug', that appeared in the paper in 1913-14. It was one of the first actual comic strips in Australia, and had no follow-up until Stan Cross started using the genre in 1920.

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.
