Oscar Jacobsson (1889-1945) was a Swedish comic creator and cartoonist who started his career in 1918, when his first newspaper illustration was published. Jacobsson's first illustrations were published in Naggen.
Jacobsson was born in Göteborg.
Jacobsson also worked for other publications. His illustrations frequently appeared in magazines and papers like Exlex, Dagens Nyheter and Lutfisken. Near the end of his stellar career, Jacobsson created another comic character: Abu Fakir. This was published in Vi.
Keeping Adamson Alive
'Adamson' outlived his creator; the Danish artist Viggo Ludvigsen continued the comic strip for nearly two decades after Oscar Jacobsson's death in 1945. And in the U.S. two artists kept Jacobson alive—Henry Thol from 1935–40 and Jeff Hayes from 1941-53.
