Little Joe (8/2/1942)
Robert "Bob" Leffingwell was the brother of Ed Leffingwell, the creator of the 'Little Joe' Sunday page. He continued the strip after the death of his brother in 1936 and continued it until 1972. Earlier, he had already succeeded his brother as the assistant of his uncle Harold Gray. He also did art for 'Little Orphan Annie' for a short time after 1968. In the 1930s he has done comic book art for companies like Centaur ('Evidence Eddy', 'Taint So!') and National Periodicals ('It's A Dern Lie', 'Sagebrush 'n' Cactus', 'Sir Loin of Beef').

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.
