Fritzi Ritz, by Larry Whittington

Larry Whittington was a cartoonist with the Press Publishing Company, the syndicate of the New York Evening World, in the 1920s. In 1922, he created the newspaper comic about the young girl 'Fritzi Ritz'. By 1925, he moved over to King Features to create another comic, the shortlived feature 'Maizie the Model'. 'Fritzi Ritz' was handed over to Ernie Bushmiller, who brought it to great fame when he added Fritzi's niece 'Nancy' to the cast.

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.
