Julius Svendsen was born in Norway, but his family emigrated and settled in New York in 1923. Svendsen was an artist for the Disney newspaper strips. He did 'The Seven Dwarfs and the Witch-Queen', that appeared in the American Sunday papers from 2 March to 27 April 1958. Later that year, he did a Sunday strip with 'Sleeping Beauty' (3 August to 28 December). Both were written by Floyd Gottfredson. From 1 June 1959 to 17 March 1962, he did the 'Mickey Mouse' daily with text by Roy Williams. He also worked for the animation studios. He has cooperated on the films 'The Aristocats' and 'Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day', as well as the 'Tomorrowland' TV series.

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.
