Jack & Jill, by H.M. Talintyre

H. M. Talintyre was the artist of the 'Uncle Oojah' feature, that appeared on the front page of The Oojah's Paper, during the interbellum. The Oojah's Paper was a children's supplement of the Daily Mail, and the title strip was written by Flo Lancaster and initially drawn by Thomas Maybank, from whom Talintyre took over in 1929. Talintyre also drew 'Uncle Oojah' for the weekly comics Playhour, Pictures and Jack & Jill up until the 1950s, when the feature was called 'Jerry, Don and Snooker'. Another comic by Talintyre is 'Jack and Jill', that appeared in TV Comic.

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.
