William "Bill" Payne was a Canadian artist who had a brief career in comics. He succeeded Norm Drew on the series of comic strip biographies 'The Giants', and continued it with scriptwriter Walt McDayter for the Toronto Telegram News Service from 1968 until at least 1969. He later did comic book art, appearing in some of DC's horror and war titles of the 1970s, such as 'Ghosts', 'Haunted Tales', 'All Out War', and 'House of Mystery'.

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.
