At a very young age, George Wunder knew that he wanted to become a professional comic artist. He enrolled in an art course with the International Correspondence School. In 1936, his dream came true: he got a job at the Associated Press as a staff artist. He worked together with artists Noel Sickles and Tom Paprocki. In 1946, when the Tribune-News syndicate was looking for a replacement for Milton Caniff on the 'Terry and the Pirates' comic, Wunder was chosen. He devoted himself to this comic until his retirement in 1973. George Wunder died in 1987.

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.
