art by Lynd Ward

Born in Chicago in 1905, Lynd Ward studied art at Teachers College, Columbia University and graduated in 1926. He married May McNeer the week they graduated and immediately set sail for a year in Europe. Ward spent much of that time attending the Leipzig Academy for Graphic Arts, where he was taught the art of wood engraving by Hans Alexander Mueller.

When the Wards returned to the U.S., the artist was already hard at work honing his illustrating talents and planning his first wordless novel, 'God's Man', which appeared in November, 1929. Ward produced five additional novels in woodcuts: 'Mad Man's Drum', 'Wild Pilgrimage', 'Prelude to a Million Years', 'Song Without Words', and 'Vertigo'. The illustrations for all of these (and other) books, and many of his wood-engraved Christmas cards and prints, can be found in his 1974 biography 'Storyteller Without Words'. Ward died in 1985.

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.
