comic for Our Continent in 1883

Henry Stull was born in Hamilton, Ontario as the son of a coach and hansom cab driver in 1851. He aspired to become a professional actor, but eventually got a job with a Toronto insurance firm. Hoping to find more acting opportunities, he headed for New York City in 1872. However, he ended up an illustrator and cartoonist on the staff of Leslie's Illustrated Weekly.

He was a sports illustrator for The Spirit of the Times for 14 years and in his spare time he made racehorse portraits on commission. By the late 1890s he was one of the top horse portraitists in the country. He did comic strip work for the Philadelphia publication Our Continent in 1883.

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.
