Vic Neill started his career with Scottish Highlands-themed strips, such as 'The McTickles' and its successor 'Wee Ben Nevis'. In 1977 a new spin-off comic was launched to replace Sparky. The result was 'Plug', drawn mainly by Neill. During this period, Vic Neill was also drawing many strips for IPC magazines. In the eighties he took over 'The Germs' from David Sutherland, and he drew 'Billy Whizz' for most of the nineties. From 1997, Vic Neill also drew 'Tim Traveller', the boy with the time-travelling bike, for Beano.

Series and books by Vic Neill 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.
