The Tortoise and the Hare, from Air Pirates, by Gary Hallgren 1971

Gary Hallgren grew up in the Pacific Northwest U.S. and studied painting and design at Western Washington State College. He became a sign painter, specializing in Art Nouveau style and cartoon art. Gary Hallgren became involved with the underground comix scene around 1970. He teamed up with Dan O' Neill, Bobby London, Ted Richards and Shary Flenniken to start Air Pirates Funnies, a comix series that parodied Disney characters (especially Mickey Mouse, who could be seen having sex with Minney, getting high and smuggling drugs). Disney started a process against the artists for copyright infringement, but the case was finally settled out of court.

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.
