H. C. Milburn was a British comic book artist who worked mainly for the Amalgamated Press. Among his early work was 'Lonely Nan' in Bubbles and the Children's Fairy in 1921. During the 1930s he appeared mainly to be a duplicator of other artist's work, when he drew for Joker and Illustrated Chips ('Barnacle Bill the Sailor', among other strips). He drew 'Yu Chong the Yellow Pirate' for The Monster Comic in 1931 and 'Pals of the Prairie' for Comic Cuts in 1937. In 1947 he did contributions to Load-o-fun and Funny Stuff, two one-shot comics published by Holland Press. Between 1954 and 1957 he drew the feature 'Prince the Wonder Dog' for Playhour. He has also drawn 'Buck Jones' for Cowboy Comics.

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.
