Sniffy, by George Fett

George Fett was the son of Hungarian immigrants, born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1920. He attended the Cleveland School of Art, where he graduated in 1941. He was in the Merchant Marines during World War II, and got a scholarship at the Colorado School of Art afterwards. He worked as an engineer until he took on cartooning in 1961. He created the syndicated newspaper strip 'Sniffy' three years later. The strip, based on Fett's own pets, was retitled 'Norbert' in 1973. Syndicated by Bell-McClure and later United Features, 'Norbert' achieved great popularity in Australia and Japan. Fett drew the strip until 1982, and Dick Cavalli drew it for another year.

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.
