Heer Aap by Frank M. Williamson

Frank M. Williamson is an artist, presumably British, who drew a comic about a mischievous monkey in 1923. The strip's genre and cast shows a resemblance to Benjamin Rabier's 'Gédéon'. It was at least published as 'De Avonturen van Heer Aap' in Dutch local newspaper De Zaanlander before World War II. The paper also published a book collecting the episodes, in which the young readers were encouraged to color the drawings themselves.

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.
