Evelyn Flinders demonstrated unusual artistic promise and was permitted to enter Hornsey Art School at the age of fifteen. Her goal was to work for the Amalgamated Press. Flinders' first break came with 'Schooldays' in 1928. By the time she was 21 years old, Flinders illustrated stories for virtually all the AP's girls' weeklies. Evelyn Flinders was particulary adored for her long-running serials about 'The Silent Three'. The trio were the frontpage stars of School Friend, which first appeared on 20 May, 1950. A total of fifteen picture serials came from her pen before Evelyn Flinders retired in 1959.

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.
