Lady Penelope, by Eric Eden

Eric Eden had studied with Frank Hampson in Southport and briefly joined the 'Dan Dare' team in 1950. After a spell in advertising he returned to the strip in 1955, where he specialised in airbrush art and in the large space craft which populated the strip. Eden also scripted many 'Dan Dare' stories before he left Eagle. He then went to work for TV21, where he drew among others 'Lady Penelope' and 'XL5'. He died at his home in Shropshire in 1983, aged only 59.

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.
