Sexton Blake, by Jack Grandfield (1949)

Jack Grandfield was the illustrator of one 'Sexton Blake' story in Knock-Out, called 'Sexton Blake and the Strange Case of the Plastic Bullet'. The strip started on 11 June 1949, and was written espacially for Grandfield by Edward Holmes. It was the first strip Grandfield had done, and it was also his last, for he died shortly afterwards, still in his early thirties.

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.
