Little Lulu, by Marge (1950)

Marjorie Henderson Buell, who signed her work "Marge", was a pioneering female cartoonist who had a long career working on various one-panel gag strips and illustration. She is especially known for creating the famous character 'Little Lulu'. Originally, Lulu appeared as a single panel cartoon in the Saturday Evening Post magazine, starting in June 1935 and running until 1947.

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.
