Fred Schwab, who signed with a variety of pen names, was a cartoonist and author of short features for comic books from 1938 to 1950. Educated at the New York City's Art Students League, he worked the Chesler Studio (1936-38), the Eisner-Iger Studio (1939-40) and Funnies Inc. (1939). He did gag cartoons for Boy's Life and Yank, and many funny features for Centaur ('Dash of 100th Century', 'The Great Boudini', 'How to be an Amateur G-Man', 'Jr. Detective', 'Wilbur' and 'Tenderfoot Joe'). He also contributed to National/DC ('Butch the Pup', 'Salty Sam'), Farrell ('Slug McLug'), Fox ('Hemlock Shomes and Dr. Potsam', Professor Fiend') and Marvel ('Zephyr Jones').

Schwab also ghosted a couple of 'Lady Luck' stories for Klaus Nordling in Eisner's comic book insert The Spirit Section in 1948. In the 1950s, he illustrated a couple of "Congratulations" graphic albums.

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.
