Right Around Home, by Dudley Fisher

Dudley Fisher studied art at the Ohio State University, but dropped out and went to work at the art department of the Columbus Dispatch in 1911. During World War I, he was a photographer for the air force. He returned to the Dispatch in 1919, where he created his two-color daily panel 'Jolly Jingles'. In 1937, Fisher came up with a one panel Sunday page of a farm family, called 'Right Around Home'.

Syndicated by King Features, Fisher was asked to do a daily version, but this time in comics form. This became 'Myrtle', a strip that began in 1942. Fisher worked for the Dispatch and on his two newspaper strips until his death in 1951. 'Right Around Home' and 'Myrtle' were continued by other artists for nearly two decades.

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.
