Bert Laws was credited as the artist of the second incarnation of the 'Gene Autry' comic. After the initial comic books by Till Goodan and Gerald Garaghty, Laws and Bob Stevens created a daily and a Sunday strip of this western comic in the 1950s.

In fact, Laws is a pen name for comic strip packager Al Stoffel (Alfred Laws Stoffel), who is also credited for writing the original 'Bugs Bunny' and 'Woody Woodpecker' newspaper strips. Sources say the 'Gene Autry' strip was initially drawn by Pete Alvarado, then Tom Cooke and later by Mel Keefer.

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.
