John Marshall sold his first cartoon to Parade magazine at the age of 14. After graduating from the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida, in 1976, he worked as an art director for an advertising agency in Binghamton. He eventually turned to freelance cartooning and among his clients were IBM and GE. In 1982 he created his syndicated comic strip 'Buford'. Between 1989 and 2003 he regularly published cartoons in the Binghamton Press and the San Bulletin. From 1994 to 2000 he worked with Mark Cullum on the comic strip 'Walnut Cove' for King Features Syndicate. Marshall became Denis Lebrun's assistant on 'Blondie' in December 2002, and he became the strip's lead artist in May 2005.

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.
