Alley Oop, by Dave Graue

David Graue was hired by V. T. Hamlin as an assistant writer on the classic caveman strip 'Alley Oop' in 1950. When Hamlin retired in 1971, Graue took over all art and writing duties on the strip. From 1991, he was assisted by the artist Jack Bender, who took over completely when Graue died in a car crash in 2001.

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.
