Grandfather Clause, by Chris Wright

Chris Wright studied medical illustration at the University of Nebraska. After two years, he joined the army as a graphic illustrator and draftsman. When his service ended, he moved to Colorado to study at the Western State College in Gunnison. There he started to draw comics for the student newspaper, which won him an award in 1995. Before graduating in Studio Art and History, he was already offered a job as editorial cartoonist. His first newspaper strip, 'Pellets', started running in The Colorado Springs Gazette and several smaller newspapers in 1997. Creators Syndicate signed him on two years later, and he created 'Grandfather Clause', about a baby boomer who refuses to grow up. This strip ran until 2001.

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.
