Bibliography possibly still partial and inaccurate, despite my best intentions. My apologies. I have made it as complete as I could  including some pretty trivial stuff. An earlier list by Tim Barnes and J. David Jackson from 1996 was a big help. 

If you click on the column headings the table will reorganise itself in an ascending or descending fashion. Clicking Title will put the comic work list into alphabetical order.Using Back or clicking End Date will return it to chronological order. Clicking the cute little images will enlarge them.

*Note: where the date states 01/01/ then assume the exact date/month is unknown, only the year. Advice welcome.
