Dr Atomic, by Larry Todd

Larry Todd was born in Buffalo, New York in 1948. He studied art at Syracuse University, and published his first comic work in Galaxy magazine. In 1967 he met another Galaxy artist, Vaughn Bodé, and they did a series of oil paintings together that were used as covers for Warren magazines. Todd moved to New York in 1971 to work for this company, but he soon returned to San Francisco, where he met up with the Air Pirates and was inspired by Bobby London to create a mad scientist comic character. This became 'Dr. Atomic', a comic which first appeared in The Sunday Paper.

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.
