Welcome to the Grand Comics Database!
We're a nonprofit, internet-based organization of international volunteers dedicated to building a database covering all printed comics throughout the world, and we're glad you're here! Give our search a try, or take a look at the menu to the left to see how you can help us improve the site.
Manage your comics at my.comics.org
Our subsite my.comics.org introduces a comic collection functionality to our website and is of course based on our extensive database of international comics. Please note that my.comics.org is still in development and there are known useful features that are still to be implemented. Discussion about additional features and bug reports takes place on the gcd-main mailing list, feel free to chime in there, contact us by e-mail or even actively help us in the further development.
We added two new functionalities to my.comics.org recently:
- import of collections by uploading a file, details described in the help at my.comics.org
- overview of the collection status per series

Dupa was offered a spot in Tintin magazine in 1968, and this resulted in the creation of Dupa's famous dog 'Cubitus'. The adventures of the sympathetic, fluffy white dog gained immediate popularity, and the cast was soon enhanced by Cubitus' master, the retired sea dog Sémaphore, and the evil cat next door Sénéchal. The series remained a regular feature in Tintin throughout the 1980s, and even got its own, although shortlived, magazine in 1989.
