- Vår sökmotor har vissa begränsningar, då den är känslig för stavning. Till exempel kommer "Spiderman" och "Spider-Man" att ge olika sökresultat. Även "Musse & Långben" och "Musse och Långben" kommer att ge olika resultat. Vi vill gärna skapa en bättre sökmotor, så har du möjlighet att uppgradera den, hör av dig.
- Vi närmar oss 25 000 omslag! Det är ca 44 procent av alla svenska tidningar. Blir det du som får äran av att ladda upp det 25-tusende omslaget?

Other strips he created were ‘Aventuras de Caza del Pibe Palito’ and ‘Aventuras de Dos Argentinos en un País Salvaje’.
In 1939, he and his brother Arturo Cazeneuve emigrated to the USA where they both worked in the early comic-book industry.
Working briefly in the Eisner-Iger Studio and then in a studio he formed with his brother Arturo, Pierce Rice, and other artists, he produced stories for Fox Features, Harvey, Marvel (then called Timely), DC Comics, and other publishers.
He co-created ‘Red Raven’ with writer Joe Simon (Marvel, 1940), the first Marvel character in his own titled comic.
At Fox, he drew the initial stories of ‘Samson’ (“Samson”, 1940), ‘The Eagle’ (“Weird Comics”, 1940), ‘The Banshee’ (“Fantastic Comics”, 1941), and ‘U.S. Jones’ (“Wonderworld Comics”, 1941), among other work.
At DC, his most prominent work was on ‘Shining Knight’ (“Adventure Comics”, 1942–1945) and ‘Aquaman’ (“More Fun Comics” and “Adventure Comics”, 1942–1948).
He also worked on ‘The Boy Commandos’, ‘Crimson Avenger’, ‘Green Arrow’, ‘Vigilante’, and other features.
His final comic-book work was at Fawcett in 1948 and 1949.

Born in Nova Scotia, Foster rode his bicycle to the United States in 1919 and began to study in Chicago, eventually living in America.
In 1928, he began one of the earliest syndicated adventure strips, an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s “Tarzan”.
In 1937, William Randolph Hearst offered him complete ownership to create a new strip for the Hearst papers. The result was Foster’s signature strip, the weekly “Prince Valiant”.
The medieval fantasy adventure is set in medieval times. The strip featured his dexterous, detailed artwork; unusually, he preferred putting narration and dialogue in captions rather than balloons within the art.
Foster received multiple awards from the National Cartoonists Society — the Reuben Award in 1957, the Story Comic Strip Award in 1964, and the Special Features Award in 1966 and 1967, all for Prince Valiant. He received the Elzie Segar Award in 1978 and the Gold Key Award (their Hall of Fame) in 1977.
Posthumously, he was inducted into the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1996, the Joe Shuster Canadian Comic Book Creators Hall of Fame in 2005, and the Society of Illustrators’ Hall of Fame in 2006.

Robbins moved to San Francisco in 1970 and in July that year she participated in the collective creation of the first self-consciously feminist comic, “It Ain’t Me Babe Comix”. She was involved with the seminal “Wimmin’s Comix” throughout its 20-year history, including a story in the first issue that is widely considered the first portrayal of an open lesbian in comics.
Robbins’ artistic work ranges from the eclectic subjects of the undergrounds, through adaptations of Sax Rohmer and Tanith Lee in graphic novels, through a children’s series about Millie the Model’s niece, “Misty”, to multiple “Wonder Woman” series.
Since 1985, Robbins has written half a dozen histories of women artists and writers of cartoons, strips, and comic books. “Women and the Comics” was the first, co-written with Catherine Yronwode, and it laid an early foundation in the field. Her subjects range from 19th Century newspaper strip artists through contemporary mainstream, indie, and zine creators.

In his early twenties, Messmer had a strip running in the New York World and he collaborated on an animated series based on the life of Pres. Teddy Roosevelt.
Messmer served in World War I and returned to animation when he came home. In 1919 he produced his best-known creation, Felix the Cat, in the cartoon “Feline Follies”.
He was working for Pat Sullivan’s studio and only Sullivan’s name appeared on the cartoons. Felix was the first cartoon character created and developed for the screen, as well as the first to become a licensed, mass-merchandised character.
He also drew the “Felix the Cat” newspaper strip from its beginning until 1954. New Felix cartoons were produced until 1931, but the character did not make the transition to sound film.
In the 1940s and 1950s, Messmer produced Felix comic books for companies such as Dell Comics, Toby Press, and Harvey Comics.
