Doc Winner secured a position with the Pittsburgh Post in his early twenties, succeeding Billy DeBeck. In 1918, Winner accepted an offer from the William Randolph Hearst organization and joined its comic art staff. This was the beginning of a 38 year association with Hearst. Winner was one of the most talented of the King Features bullpen crew. He filled in on established comics such as 'Thimble Theatre', 'Barney Google' and 'The Katzenjammer Kids'. Among his own features are 'Tubby' (1920s) and 'Elmer' (1930s). Doc Winner died of cancer on August 12, 1956.

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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
