The Richleigh Family in Paris, by W.O. Wilson 1904

W. O. Wilson was the creator of several newspaper strips that appeared around the end of the nineteenth century. In 1904 he drew the Sunday strip 'The Richleigh Family'. It was followed by 'The Wish Twins and Aladdin's Lamp'. This strip ran until 1907 and combined the two main themes in comics of that time: children and fantasy. Wilson also created 'Madge the Magician's Daughter', another strip in this genre, which ran from 1905 until 1910.

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.
