Morty the Dog by Steve Willis

Steve Willis is an American cartoonist from the Pacific Northwest, who was prominently part of the new wave of smallpress publications of the 1980s. Willis sold his wacky, surreal and playful photocopied mini-comics like 'Cranium Frenzy' by mail-order. He also contributed his work to local semi-regular papers like the Seattle Star. Willis' main character was 'Morty the Dog', whose adventures he drew on the backs of retired filing cards or random pieces of paper.

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.
