comic panel by John Willie

John Alexander Scott Coutts was born of British parents in Singapore. He studied in England, then moved to Australia. From there, he sent his designs to the US. Most of his work was published (under the pseudonym John Willie) between 1946 and 1959 in Bizarre magazine, which Willie also edited. His most famous stories were 'The Adventures of Sweet Gwendoline', 'Pauline's Peril' and 'Hairbreadth Harry'. John Willie was a master of the bondage genre, and he created numerous works for private orders, which unfortunately have never been published. He retired to Guernsey, where he died in 1962.

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.
