Little Debbie, by Cecil Jensen

Cecil Jensen worked as a press illustrator and editorial cartoonist for the Chicago Daily News from 1928 to 1946. He switched over to comics in 1946, starting with a sole story of 'Syncopating Sue'. He then created the character 'Elmo', who was soon accompanied by his little sister 'Debbie'. In 1949, the little girl became the main character of the strip, which was retitled to 'Little Debbie' afterwards. Distributed by the Registe and Tribune Syndicate, the strip ran until 1961.

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.
