Hjälpsamme Jönsson, by Rudolf Petersson

After Rudolf Petersson worked as an advertising artist in the United States, he started a comic in weekly Swedish magazine, Allt for Alla (Everything for Everybody). Here, he created the character of the soldier Mandel Karlsson of the Swedish Army, in the series '91:an' (number 91). After a couple of years, the comic moved to the magazine Levande Livet (The Living Life). When Petersson retired, the comic was continued by Nils Egerbrandt. In 1965, he was the first person to receive the Adamson Award. From 1960 until his death in 1970, he drew 'Hjälpsamme Jönsson' for Levande Livet.

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.
