Karl and Fritz, by Victor Schramm

Victor Schramm was an early German comics artist from Munich. He contributed to Lothar Meggendorfer's Meggendorfer Blätter during the 1890s. Like several of his contemporaries, he began drawing cartoons for the Chicago Tribune Sunday comic section during 1906 and 1907. Most of his comic pages for this American newspaper feature the characters 'Karl and Fritz'.

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.
