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.

Dwayne McDuffie (20 February 1962 – 21 February 2011, USA) was a comics and television writer.

He began his comics career editing at Marvel in the late 1980s. In 1988, he and Ernie Colón created ‘Damage Control’, a feature about the clean-up and renovation crew that deals with the devastation of super-battles.

In 1993, McDuffie, Denys Cowan, Michael Davis, and Derek T. Dingle founded Milestone Media to amplify diversity in USA comics. He was editor-in-chief of Milestone Comics, which they published from 1993 to 1997.

The Milestone line included “Hardware”, “Static”, and “Icon”, among other series. The comics were published by DC but without editorial control (other than right of rejection).

In 2000, Milestone created the animated television show “Static Shock”. McDuffie was a writer on the series, which ran until 2004.

In 2002, he joined the writing staff of “Justice League” and continued to write and produce it, “Justice League Unlimited”, and other DC Animated Universe shows until his unexpected death.

McDuffie returned to comics in the mid-2000s, writing for both Marvel and DC. He produced long runs on “Fantastic Four” (2006–2008) and “Justice League of America” (2007–2009).

DC Comics integrated the Milestone characters into their main fictional universe in 2008, and they have appeared in both comics and animated shows since then. In 2010, McDuffie wrote “Milestone Forever” to provide the back-story for that integration.

Fellow author Charlotte Fullerton is his widow. In 2016, she established the Dwayne McDuffie Fund to support work that speaks to his vision of diversity and authenticity, in comics and animation in particular.

Steve Oliff (born 20 February 1954, USA) is an artist who has worked primarily as a colorist in the comics industry since 1978. His earliest work was for Byron Preiss at Baronet.

In 1979, he colored the stories in “The Hulk!” #13 at Marvel, which included Bill Sienciewicz’s first ‘Moon Knight’ story. Since then he has colored hundreds of comics, using evolving technologies.

In 1987, Marvel’s Epic imprint asked him to color their translation of Katsuhiro Otomo’s “Akira”. They agreed to let him try doing digital color separation, which he and his colleagues at Olyoptics had begun experimenting with. After the high-profile success of the series, computer-assisted coloring has become prevalent in the industry.

Oliff received multiple ‘Best Colorist’ awards during the 1990s, from both the Eisner Awards and the Harvey Awards.
