Stand by please, by Gluyas Williams

Gluyas Williams was one of the early American comic artists, whose work appeared around the 1920s. He created comics in a clear black and white style, often commenting on current themes such as censorship and the Prohibition. His work appeared in magazines like Life, Collier's, Century and The New Yorker. He also illustrated books, such as 'Father of the Bride' by Edward Streeter. His work was so popular, that a collection appeared already in 1929, called 'The Gluyas Williams Book'.

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.
