Californian artist Raymond Crawford Ewer succeeded George Frink on the newspaper strip 'Slim Jim' in 1910. Not much is known about this artist, except that he started cartooning around 1908 and that he devoted himself to the 'Slim Jim' strip with the same humor and inventiveness as his predecessor. When he left the strip in 1913, he contributed to publications like Judge and Puck. Ewer died in 1915, and was succeeded by Stanley Armstrong, who continued to draw it until 1937. Ewer died of tuberculosis in August 1915.

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.
