Vignettes of Life by Kemp Starrett
Vignettes of Life

Kemp Starrett was a newspaper cartoonist and comic strip artist, mainly active in the 1930s. He was staff cartoonist at the Brooklyn Eagle, New York Herald Tribune and, most notably, the Philadelphia Public Ledger. He drew the 'Roy Powers, Eagle Scout' strip during the first year of its run, until it was taken over by Frank Godwin, another artist for the Ledger. Also for this newspaper, he worked on features like 'Babe Bunting' and 'War On Crime', but his longest running series was 'Vignettes of Life', which he drew from 1939 to 1952.

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.
