The Grand Comics Database (GCD) is a nonprofit, internet-based organization of international volunteers dedicated to building an open database covering all printed comics throughout the world. Give our search a try, take a look at the menu to the left to see how you can help us improve the site, or use my.comics.org to track and manage your comic collection.
Two Indexing Milestones!
We reached 325,000 indexed issues and 2.5 million stories !
With a recent issue of the British serial Commando #5192 we reached a new milestone for indexed issues. And on the same day, we reached 2.5 million indexed stories (or sequences) with the issue Spider Gwen: Ghost Spider #4 from Marvel.
Volunteers Wanted For Adding New Comics
Each week, a small number of GCD volunteers add listings to our database for the new comics released that week in North America. These are just the basic listings, not full indexes. This makes it easier for other volunteers who upload covers and for indexers, as well as for people using my.comics.org.
Each volunteer covers one publisher or a small group of publishers (“D publishers except DC”, for example). From public sources such as ComicsList and Diamond Previews online, they add the issues and make note of the prices and a few other details. We are looking for additional volunteers for this weekly task.Follow this link for a description of the process and a list of which publishers are currently covered.

Cover from Snowpiercer #1 - The Escape
His first album was “Les Centiers Cimentés” (Futuropolis, 1981). In addition to his personal work, he has collaborated with writers such as Frank Pé (“Le Théâtre d’Ombres”) and Cécile Wagner (“Les Yeux dans le Mur”).
His distinct style of stark black-and-white images with little text is suggestive, not explicit. In the early 1990s, he moved to independent publisher L’Association, whose younger artists regard him as an ‘elder statesman’ of the art.
Baudoin has received awards at Angoulême for Best French Comic (1992) and for Best Scenario (1997 and 2001). From 1999 to 2003, he was an art professor at the University of Quebec.
