Comic art by Bob Stevens

Bob Stevens was an American cartoonist and aviator. Born Robert Merrill Stevens, he studied art at Pasadena, California, before joining the Army Air Corps in 1942. He flew about every World War II fighter the Army Air Forces had, and also made cartoons for the army magazines Army Times and Stars and Stripes. He later worked as a civilian flight instructor and then transitioned to jets. He set a world speed record in 1950 in the F-86 Sabre and later commanded the first Atlas missile squadron.

There I Was by Bob Stevens

After retiring from active duty as a colonel, Stevens became a successful cartoonist. His comic strip 'Clementine' ran with the Lew Little Syndicate in 1965 and 1966. He subsequently turned to creating editorial cartoons for the Copley News Service, and his work was soon syndicated to more than 300 newspapers. During the 1970s and 1980s, he made aviation cartoons for Private Pilot and Professional Pilot magazines. His work has been collected in books like 'There I Was, Flat On My Back' (1968) and 'More There I Was' (1974) by Martin Leeuwis Publications.

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.
