comic art by Josh Simmons

Joshua Hall Simmons grew up in the small town Coventry, Connecticut. He started living and traveling with the End of the World Circus/ Know Nothing Family Zirkus Zideshow back in 2000. His short comic strips have appeared in SPX (2002), and in several anthologies like 'Top Shelf Asks the Big Questions' (2003), 'Top Shelf Under the Big Top' (1999), 'Kramers Ergot' 4 (Avodah Books, 2002), 'True Porn', 'Typewriter' 6 (2004), 'Big Dumb Fun', Tower's PULSE!, and 'Studygroup 12' #3. In 2001, Top Shelf published the Small Batch book 'Cirkus NEW Orleans', a journal account of his time spent with the Cirkus. The best sampling of his work, though, is to be found in the 4 issues of 'Happy' published by Top Shelf Productions from 2001 to 2004, his solo anthology comic.

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.
