Skit, Skat and the Captain, by Basil Reynolds

Basil Reynolds was educated at Holloway County School and joined the Adams and Fidier Agency in 1933. Reynolds became possibly the youngest cartoonist with strips in national newspapers. Strips such as 'Our Silly Cinema' in the South Wales Echo & Express (1933), 'Septimus and his Space Ship' in the Scottish Daily Express (1934) and 'Billy the Baby Beetle' in the Daily Sketch (1935). In 1936, the Disney organization opened up in Britain with Mickey Mouse Weekly, and Reynolds was on the staff. He created 'Skit, Skat and the Captain' and wrote and illustrated 'Shuffled Symphonies'. After the war Reynolds returned to drawing and created 'Bongo', 'Li'l Wolf and Danny the Lamb', 'True Life Adventures' and 'Peter Puppet'. In 1971 Reynolds returned to drawing his favorite Disney characters for magazine Disneyland.

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.
