Bix Barton, by Jim McCarthy

Jim McCarthy studied at Ealing College from 1972 to 1975, where he experimented with animation, print, collage and fabrics. This resulted in McCarthy's first comics work. He then worked for three years as an industry training artist in Europe. His first big break in the comics scene was 'Bad Company', followed by work on 'Future Shocks'. He is the co-creator of the 'Bix Barton' series along with Pete Milligan, a series that appeared in 2000 AD. Other creations are 'Grudgefather' and 'Kid Cyborg'.

Series and books by Jim McCarthy in stock in the Lambiek Webshop:


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.
