Bascomb by Doc Goodwin

Louis "Doc" Goodwin was a cartoonist with the Ohio State Journal and Columbus Star for ten years before joining The Columbus Dispatch in 1962. He remained with this paper for 25 years until his retirement in 1987, and his work varied from editorial cartoonist to Sunday comic strips.

His work included the comic strip 'Phillip's Flock' that was syndicated through Dispatch Features between 1968 and 1985, and the humour panel 'Mostly Male'. The latter evolved into the family Sunday comic 'Bascomb', that was partially inspired by Goodwin's family life. Louis Goodwin passed away in 2012, at age 89.

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.
