Abstract:

"Alan Clark, a leading historian and collector of comics, has been in the forefront of research in this field and in the quest for factual information over the last twenty-five years he has been pursuing artists, and editors, or their heirs, while persuading publishers to open up their archives. The compiler is also grateful for the fact that he had the work of other diligent researchers and collectors to draw upon. The result is this pioneering biographical dictionary, covering the period from 1867 to 1997, in which the cloak of anonymity is stripped from hundreds of pen and ink men. The dictionary entries describe in succinct detail the professional lives and careers of their subjects, together with the characters they created and the publications for which they worked. The author hopes and intends that the information will be used as a basis for further research."--BOOK JACKET.
