Pa's Son in Law 1925, by Duke Wellington

Charles H. Wellington started his career in 1908, working for the Memphis News-Scimitar. His style attracted the attention of newspaper tycoon Henry Stoddard, who offered him a job at the New York Evening Mail. Wellington created a strip called 'Pa's Imported Son-In-Law', which changed its title to 'That Son-In-Law of Pa's!' when it moved to the Tribune newspaper. Later on, it was renamed once again to 'Pa's Son-In-Law'. The strip ran until Wellington's death in 1942.

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.
