comic art by Eugene Zimmerman

Eugene Zimmerman was employed as a cartoonist with Puck Magazine where he was influenced by the work of Joseph Keppler. Later, he moved to The Judge where he worked with his close friend, Bernard Gillam. Zimmerman, who often signed with ZIM, was the developer of the grotesque school of caricature and one of the nation's most respected and original cartoonists of the late 19th century. ZIM also did formal portraiture, wrote newspaper and magazine articles, drew a newspaper comic strip, illustrated books, created a cartoonist correspondence course, and was the founder and first president of the American Association of Cartoonists and Caricaturists.

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.
