Ateful Adolg and Basil & Bert, by George Parlett 1939

George 'Froth' Parlett, son of Harry Parlett and brother of Reg Parlett, was a British comic artist who contributed his work to several comic magazines. He created the strip 'Basil and Bert', which appeared in Jester. Early 1939, this magazine was the only one in Britain to hint at the pending war when 'Basil and Bert' came up against Dick Tater. In September 1939, when war was a fact, Dick Tater turned into the real Ateful Adolf, referring, of course, to Adolf Hitler.

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.
