Our Boarding House, by Bill Freyse

Bill Freyse graduated from the Central High School of Detroit. He began his career at the Detroit Times as a editorial cartoonist and entertainment page cartoonist. He had his big break when he was assigned to continue Gene Ahern's 'Our Boarding House' strip, starring Major Hoople, from Bela Zaboly in 1939. Freyse was able to perfectly continue the strip with the same quality as Ahern did. He drew it until his death in 1969, and the strip was continued by Less Carroll and Tom McCormick.

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.
