Wimmens Comix, by Terry Richards 1976

One of the founding women underground cartoonists, Teresa Richards viewed comix as "an excuse to expand my mind creatively. Since there were no limits, as well as no money, artist were free to experiment without commercial restrains." Specific projects on which Terry Richards joined with others, both as editor and artist, included 'Mama! Dramas' (comics by women cartoonists who were also mothers), 'Manhunt', 'Wet Satin', 'Bizarre Sex', 'Tits & Clits Comix' and many issues of Wimmen's Comix. Terry has worked for twenty years as a graphic designer, work which includes making experimental short films and storyboarding for digital movies and CD-ROM's. She has also worked on a screenplay for a feature film, called 'Private Eye'.

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.
