Francis Kirn was an American illustrator. He illustrated among others nursery rhymes books for Whitman in the 1940s (a.o. 'Mother Goose'). He also made his own children's book called 'Christmas in Tangletown', as well as the newspaper comic 'Uncle Wiggily' (1948-1953).

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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
