Välkommen till Grand Comics Database!

Vi är en icke-kommersiell, internetbaserad organisation med internatioella frivilliga som hjälper till att bygga en databas som täcker alla tryckta serier i hela världen. Vi är glada att du har hittat oss! Prova gärna att söka i databasen eller undersök menyn till höger för att se hur du kan bidra till projektet.

Vår sökmotor har vissa begränsningar, då den är känslig för stavning. Till exempel kommer "Spiderman" och "Spider-Man" att ge olika sökresultat. Även "Musse & Långben" och "Musse och Långben" kommer att ge olika resultat. Vi vill gärna skapa en bättre sökmotor, så har du möjlighet att uppgradera den, hör av dig.
Vi närmar oss 25 000 omslag! Det är ca 44 procent av alla svenska tidningar. Blir det du som får äran av att ladda upp det 25-tusende omslaget?

Det svenska språket är än så länge blygsamt representerat. Det är bara denna sida som än så länge är översatt. Resten är på engelska. Planen är dock att få en mer "svensk" touch på fler sidor framöver.

Vi behöver frivilliga för webdesign och programmering!

Om du ser att du kan hjälpa till något av detta, kontakta gcd-teknikgruppen. Det som behövs är:

  • Webdesigner: Front-end developer (HTML, CSS, JavaScript)
  • Web Services API
  • Python- och Djangoprogrammering
  • Database Performance (MySQL)

Roger McKenzie (born 8 November, USA) is a comic book writer whose career began in 1976.

His earliest stories were in the Warren magazines “Creepy”, “Eerie”, and “Vampirella” (1976–1982). He also published at DC during that time (1978–1980).

He first worked with Frank Miller on a story in “Weird War Tales” at DC (1978). That same year he began writing “Daredevil” at Marvel, where Miller soon joined him.

Their collaboration on the Man Without Fear (1978–1980) was marked by the resonance between the dark tone of McKenzie’s script and Miller’s artwork.

From the 1980s, he has also published with a variety of smaller publishers. He wrote the main story and a ‘Magnus’ back-up in “Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom” at Gold Key (Western, 1982).

He and Pat Broderick created the science fiction series “Sun Runners” (1984–1987), published by Pacific, Eclipse, Sirius, and then Amazing.

McKenzie is currently the executive editor at Charlton Neo. He also writes for their titles “The Charlton Arrow” and “Charlton Wild Frontier”.

Since February 2015, he has been writing the ‘Spookman’ weekly comic strip with Sandy Carruthers for Pix-C, a comics website associated with many of the same rabble as the Charlton Neo comics.
