Winnie Winkle, by Max Van Bibber 1965

Max Van Bibber is the comics artist who took over the famous 'Winnie Winkle' strip after the death of its creator Martin Branner in 1962. 'Winnie Winkle' had started in 1920, and the main character, a working girl, had been married, widowed and the mother of twins by the time Max Van Bibber stepped in. Following the trend of the time, he made the strip into a soap, and drew it in a realistic style. Winnie had become a fashion designer. Max Van Bibber retired in 1980, and the strip was taken over first by Joe Kubert's school of cartooning, later by Frank Bolle.

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.
