Breezy Ben and Dismal Dutchy, by Tom Wilkinson 1915

Tom Wilkinson was one of the early British comic artists. As a pioneer, he was one of the first to experiment with the six-panelled page layout of comics, drawing lush decorations around the panels of his comic 'Lanky Larry and Bloated Bill', which appeared in the Comic Home Journal in 1902. He also contributed to magazine Chuckles (started 1914), for which he created 'Breezy Ben and Dismal Dutchy'.

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.
