Splodge, by Charles Grigg

Charles (Charlie) Grigg was an artist for the comic books published by D.C. Thomson, such as The Dandy. A versatile artist during a period of 40 years, one of his first features for The Dandy was 'Charlie the Chimp' from 1957 to 1960. He then illustrated 'Sooty and his Shooter' for The Dandy, 'Foxy' and 'Splodge, Last of the Goblins' in The Topper and 'Kat and Kanary' in The Beano. For many years, he was the artist of two of The Dandy's most popular features, 'Korky the Cat' (succeeding James Crighton in 1962) and 'Desperate Dan' (after the death of Dudley Watkins in 1969).

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.
