Wallace Morgan was an American illustrator, best known for his drawings about World War I. He grew up in Albany, New York and pursued his career in art in New York City. He studied at the National Academy of Design while working for the New York Sun as a part-time artist. He joined the staff of the New York Herald in 1898, where he stayed for eleven years. He was hired by Collier's to tour the United States with Julian Bond to make drawings of everyday American life. He was an artist for the American Expeditionary Forces during World War I, making sketches of battles, Generals and the soldier's day to day routine.

In 1945 he illustrated the comic strip adaptation of Margery Sharp's 'Cluny Brown' for King Features Syndicate and the Book-of-the-Month Club. He was made an honorary member of the Art Students League where he had taught for several years and in 1947 was elected to the National Academy of Design. Among his final artwork was a series of drawings for Carstairs Whiskey in 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.
