comic art by James Francis Sullivan

James Francis Sullivan was one of the first British cartoonists to employ strip techniques in his work. He was a longtime contributor to Fun magazine, published by the Dalziel publishers, ever since his student days in South Kensington. He was best known for his comic feature 'The British Working Man', starting in 1875. Sullivan also drew for Tom Hood's Comic Annual and did a feature called 'The Queer Side of Things' in George Newnes' Strand Magazine.

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.
