DUTCH EXPOSITION OF SEQUENTIAL ART HONORS U.S. AUTHOR/ARTIST
(Amsterdam) Galerie Lambiek, Europe's oldest surviving comic gallery and keeper of the ComicClopedia;
a virtual exposition of the history of newspaper comic strips and their creators has inducted
U.S. Cartoonist Joe King to their permanent collection.
Joe King began his career in the 1980s, working as a pioneering videogame designer at Mattel Electronics,
before landing on a job as a software engineer at Lockheed's Rye Canyon facility (Skunk Works).
His first comic strip, "Anomalies", was published by The Easy Reader in 1985. His graphic novel
"Men from Earth" was published in 1991 and which was optioned for a live action film at Paramount in 1996.
King's third strip, "Rust & Wrinkles", was published internationally before being collected in an anthology in 1992.
As early as 1996, King started publishing a daily cartoon on his website, while The Easy Reader started publishing
his daily "Webster" strip in 1997.
Widely recognized for their expertise on all matters concerning comics and sequential art, Lambiek.net provides
an unequaled venue for creators in both Europe and North America to explore the boundaries between their comics
and so called "conventional" art.
The addition of King's work closely coincides with May 5th's American National Cartoonists Day - also celebrated
as Read-Across-America Day and Dr. Suess's birthday.
The FUNNY PAPERZ has had over three million visitors since July 4, 1996.
