Apple Mary, by Martha Orr

Martha Orr created the newspaper comic 'Apple Mary' in 1932. This strip gradually evolved into 'Mary Worth' and was continued by Allen Saunders and Dale Connor in 1938, when Martha Orr retired to devote herself to her family. In 1942, Ken Ernst became the artist on the series. Its popularity was such that it is still running today.

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.
