Vic Flint, by Ralph Lane

Ralph Lane began his comics career in the early 1940s doing gag cartoons and assisting Roy Crane on the daily 'Buzz Sawyer' comic, as well as on 'Captain Easy'. From 1945 to 1950 he drew the 'Vic Flint' newspaper comic with texts by Ernest Lynne, who used the pen name Michael O'Malley'. The strip was distributed by Newspaper Enterprise Association and was also reprinted in comic books by St. John Publishing. Lane was succeeded by Dean Miller in 1950, who was later replaced by Art Sansom and eventually John Lane, Ralph's son.

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.
