Curt Junghändel was a German illustrator. He studied in Munich around 1900, and illustrated several children's books in the 1920s and 1930s. He was one of the regular illustrators for the children's magazine Die Kinderwelt. During the nazi regime, the magazine's name was changed to Deutsche Kinderwelt, and a swastika was added to the logo (1934). Unlike many other magazines, Deutsche Kinderwelt kept appearing during World War II, until it was cancelled in 1944. Junghändel aditionally illustrated pro-nazi children's books, like 'Soldatenspiel'.

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.
