Fred Basset, by Michael Martin (Daily Mail, 2009)
Fred Basset (Daily Mail, 2009)

Michael Martin took over the 'Fred Basset' newspaper comic in the Daily Mail after the death of Alex Graham in the early 1990s. Martin continued the famous strip about the basset hound in the same fashion as its creator, in cooperation with Graham's daughter Arran. After a couple of years, Martin put more of his own style in it, and more references to modern pop culture were made.

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.
