Welkom bij de Grand Comics Database!

Op zoek naar een specifieke strip? In het zoekveld bovenaan elke pagina kun je een zoekterm invullen.
GCD in het Nederlands
Het merendeel van de pagina's zijn in het Engels. Er zijn echter ook Nederlands- en Vlaamstalige bijdragers.
Een bijdrage leveren
Om gegevens of scans bij te dragen moet je je registreren. Linksboven op deze pagina kun je lezen hoe (in het Engels). Mocht het Engels een probleem zijn, neem dan contact op met onze Nederlandstalige contactpersoon.
Omslagscans aanleveren
Waarschijnlijk de snelste en makkelijkste bijdrage die je kunt leveren aan de databank van de GCD is het uploaden van omslagscans. Bij het bladeren door de website of na het gebruik van een gedetailleerde zoekopdracht is het snel duidelijk waar omslagscans nog ontbreken. Klik het plaatje 'Cover is Needed' aan en volg de instructies (in het Engels). Voordat nieuwe scans worden getoond op de website, worden ze eerst gekeurd door andere vrijwilligers (zogenaamde 'approvers' of 'editors') die de beelden beoordelen op kwaliteit, juistheid en vrijwaring van copyright. Dit duurt normaliter niet langer dan een dag.
Gegevens bijdragen
Ontbreekt een strip, een hele serie of zelfs een hele uitgeverij? Wil je gegevens over schrijvers, tekenaars, een synopsis, verschijnende personages of wat dan ook toevoegen? Of simpelweg een typfoutje corrigeren? Zodra je ingelogd bent kun je op vrijwel alle pagina's gegevens aanvullen of veranderen. Om te zorgen dat de gegevens uniform blijven, zijn er regels opgesteld waaraan een index moet voldoen. Daarom wordt elke verandering door een vrijwilliger nagekeken op spel- en typfouten, feitelijke onjuist- en onvolkomendheden. Om je op weg te helpen worden de eerste paar bijdrages door een vaste persoon (een 'mentor') nagekeken, die je ook vragen kunt stellen. Zo zorgen we ervoor dat de gegevens die in de databank te vinden zijn zeer betrouwbaar zijn.

GCD Comics Timeline


Every year people try to take away readers’ power to decide what books are right for themselves or their children to read by bringing challenges to remove books from libraries. Comic books, graphic novels, and manga are frequently challenged and even banned.

Russ Heath (born 29 September 1926, USA) is a comics artist and commercial illustrator whose career began in 1942. He worked at Timely (which would become Marvel) from the late 1940s, where he is known for his realistic art on western series such as “Kid Colt, Outlaw”.

In the 1950s, Heath continued to work at Marvel, also worked at EC Comics, and began a long association with DC Comics. He drew adventures series such as “Golden Gladiator” and war series such as “The Haunted Tank”.

Sometime in the 1960s, Heath drew two pieces of commercial art that became familiar bits of Americana after gracing the back covers of countless comic books through the early 1970s: advertisements for toy soldier sets, depicting Roman and Revolutionary War battle scenes.

Among the recognitions Heath has received are an Inkpot Award in 1997 and a Milton Caniff Award (from the National Cartoonists Society) in 2014. He was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2009.
