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:

Emidio Angelo (b. 1903)

1903 December 4 - 1990 September 2
Emidio Angelo studied art from 1924 to 1928 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Angelo joined The Philadelphia Inquirer as a political cartoonist in 1937 and worked there until 1954. He also drew cartoons for the Saturday Evening Post, Life and Esquire. Angelo drew a strip for the Philadelphia Inquirer entitled ‘Emily and Mabel’, which also ran in more than 130 other newspapers during the early 1950s.

James Hammon (b. 1888)

1888 December 4 - 1944 August 29
James Hammon was a cartoonist, illustrator, and comic book artist. He worked for The Evening Times (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), from 1910 until the newspaper folded in 1914. Hammon then moved onto The Ledger Syndicate in 1917 as a feature magazine illustrator and gag cartoonist with his work appearing in Collier's Magazine and Judge magazine known. James Hammon also worked for the Gibson Studio (doing work for Street and Smith), from circa 1943 to 1944, and King Features Syndicate (for the Masterpieces of Great Literature comic strip) in 1927.

Based on time periods of known work, it is likely Hammon worked also for the Philadelphia Press, from about 1908 to about 1910 and the Public Ledger (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), from about 1914 to about 1917. The Gibson Studio hired a number of former employees of the Evening Public Ledger (which folded in 1942) and the Ledger Syndicate (which continued to about 1950), of which Hammon was one.

There are several comic strips signed by "Hammon" coming out of Philadelphia newspapers that are most likely by James Hammon. These include:
Algy daily (syndicate unknown) 1911-12-04 - 1913-07-03 [Writer, pencils, and inks. Allan Holtz speculates it was the Philadelphia Inquirer, but James was working with the The Evening Times [Philadelphia] during this time, so it is probably them.];
Masterpieces of Great Literature daily (King Features Syndicate) 1927-05-XX - 1927-07-XX [Pencil and inks, on one week's worth of The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, two weeks on The Count of Monte Cristo, and one week of The Three Musketeers. The strip was designed to be ran whenever and however the newspaper wished to run it and continued appearing in newspapers through 1928. It appeared in most newspapers from May to July 1927.];
[Philadelphia Press Local Comic Strip] daily (Philadelphia Press) 1908-09-30, 1908-10-22, 1908-10-28, 1908-12-16 [Writer, pencils, and inks. An untitled comic strip with rotating creators about the local going-ons in Philadelphia.];
War on Crime daily (Ledger Syndicate) 1936-05-18 - 1936-06-13 [Pencil and inks.].

Hammon's comic book work was through the Gibson Studio and for Street and Smith, working on the features Blackstone, from 1943 and continuing posthumously until 1946; Elliman, Ace of Magic, appeared posthumously in 1946 and 1948; Magic Tricks also appeared posthumously in 1946 and 1948; and The Shadow, from 1943 continuing posthumously until 1945.

Gutemberg Monteiro (b. 1916)

1916 December 4 - 2012 December 10

There, he drew covers for Fantasma, Mandrake, X-9 and Ferdinando (Li'l Abner). He also worked on Brazilian stories with The Phantom.

In the 1960s, Monteiro was invited to work in the USA. He contributed to the Warren magazines Eerie and Creepy, and then illustrated many "Tom & Jerry" Sunday pages under the penname Goott, as well as "Casper the Friendly Ghost" and "Hot Stuff the Little Devil".

1881 December 4 - 1964 July 3
Thomas graduated from high school in Cleveland in 1899. He then attended the Cleveland Art School from 1899 to 1902 and the Detroit Art School, from 1903 to 1905.

Thomas worked as a newspaper artist for the Cleveland Press (Cleveland, Ohio), from 1900 to 1902. He then worked doing advertising illustrations for unknown products for an unknown agency, from 1902 to 1904. In 1904, Thomas joined the Detroit News (Detroit, Michigan) as a cartoonist. Per Lambiek, he started doing political cartoons in 1912 for the Detroit News, continuing there until 1951.

For an unknown time period, Thomas' political cartoonists were syndicated through the North American Newspaper Alliance. He also worked in an unknown capacity for the Bell Syndicate and the Thompson Feature Service. His cartoon work appeared in Judge (Judge, 1881 series) and Life (Life Publishing Company, 1883 Series) magazines.

Thomas did the daily comic strip, Our Neighbors (Herbert Pointing syndicating), from February 5 to August 17, 1915. He later worked the Sunday only comic strip, Mister Straphanger, possibly the only comic strip syndicated by the Detroit News (and by 1923, by the News' corporate owner name, Evening News Association). Mister Straphanger ran from February 26, 1922 until sometime in 1933.

Locally in Detroit, Thomas is most famous for his December 10, 1914 cartoon "The Boy He Used to Be" depicting a well-to-do man, arms full with gifts, holding the hands with his newspaper selling childhood self. The cartoon so moved James J.

The fund's goal being, "No kiddie without a Christmas."
