Susabelle, by Elton Fax

Elton Fax was an Afro-American artist/cartoonist, who worked through Lajoyeaux H. Stanton's Continental Features Syndicate, one of the few national distributors of "black" comics. Fax was the creator of the silent 'Susabelle' strip (1942), a gag strip that follows the exploits of a precocious young girl in "real life" situations. He also did comic book art through the Funnies Inc. shop. He did illustrations for Lev Gleason and Quality, and comic art in Novelty's 'Bull's-Eye Bill' (1945). Fax was mainly active as a book illustrator.

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.
