newspaper strip by Quincy Scott 1907

Quincy Scott was an American newspaper comic artist who was editorial cartoonist for newspaper The Portland Oregonian from 1931 to 1949. He served in both World Wars, and contributed comics to the New York Herald in 1907. In this same year, he got married to his wife Ella, and shortly after the wedding they made a trip on horseback from St. Paul, Minnesota, to Seattle Washington. They covered the distance of 2300 miles in 112 days, and both kept diaries. Quincy wrote a manuscript for a book the year after the trip, illustrated with drawings and photos, but it was never published. Only ten years after his death in 1965, Scott's daughter Dorothy Ballard rewrote and published the book under the title 'Horseback Honeymoon'.

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.
