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.

Sökning
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.
Omslagsbilder
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?

GCD på svenska
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)

‘Storm P.’ was the pen name of Robert Storm Petersen (19 September 1882 – 6 March 1949, Denmark), a popular humorist in writing and in drawing.

His first comic strip appeared in 1906. “De tre små mænd og nummermanden” (1913–1923) featured three mad-cap little men making mischief.

His most successful strip was “Peter og Ping” (1922–1949) about a fellow and his friend/son who was a penguin. Ping’s silly expressions and jokes about life in Copenhagen made him especially popular with children, who could join a Ping Club.

Storm P. was also a painter and an actor. His trenchant essays on daily life, written as though by his dog, were collected in “Grog, My Dog-Tales 1926–1935”.

Irene Vartanoff (born 18 September, USA) has combined her love of comic books and romances by working for Marvel Comics and DC Comics as well as Harlequin, Bantam, Berkley, and MyRomanceStory.com.

As a teenager, her letters to the comic editors caused such a sensation that she was incorporated into the storylines of several comic books, notably “Metal Men” and “The Flash”.

Dubbed ‘Poison Ivy’ at DC Comics, she received a new sobriquet when she took an editorial position at Marvel Comics, working closely with Stan Lee, who named her ‘Impish Irene’.

Following a long editorial career in romance publishing, Vartanoff turned to writing novels. She kicked off her career in 2015 with a superhero, a romance, and a general novel — “Temporary Superheroine”, “Captive of the Cattle Baron”, and “Summer in the City”.

Fellow author Scott Edelman is married to Vartanoff.

Joe Kubert (18 September 1926 – 12 August 2012, USA) was a comics artist and editor, art teacher, and founder of The Kubert School.

He is well-known for his work on the DC Comics characters ‘Sgt. Rock’ and ‘Hawkman’ and for his own creations, such as ‘Tor’, ‘Son of Sinbad’, and ‘Viking Prince’. With writer Robin Moore, he created the comic strip ‘Tales of the Green Beret’.

He was born in Ukraine in an area now part of Poland and his family emigrated to the USA two months later. As a young teenager he began essentially apprenticing in the new comic-book industry.

He worked with the Chesler Studio and had work in titles from Holyoke, Quality, MLJ (now Archie Comics), and others.

In 1942, he began his life-long association with DC Comics by drawing features such as ‘Johnny Quick’, ‘Hawkman’, and ‘Sargon the Sorceror’.

In the mid-1950s, following his military service, he was managing editor at St. John. There he, his high-school friend Norman Maurer, and Norman’s brother Leonard Maurer produced the first 3-D comic books. He created ‘Tor’ there in 1954.

From the early 1960s, Kubert was a central figure in the Silver Age revival of DC Comics. He worked on seminal features such as ‘Viking Prince’ and co-created a new version of ‘Hawkman’ with writer Gardner Fox.

He and writer Robert Kanigher produced a large body of war stories, including the ‘Sgt. Rock’ stories and the memorable character ‘Enemy Ace’.

From 1967 to 1976, he was the Director of Publications at DC Comics. When DC acquired the license to Edgar Rice Burroughs properties in 1972, Kubert’s art defined the look of both “Tarzan” and “Korak, Son of Tarzan”.

Comics creators Adam Kubert (born 1959) and Andy Kubert (born 1962) are his sons.

Joe Kubert continued creating and teaching throughout his life. His honors include multiple Alley Awards and National Cartoonists Society Awards, and 1997 Eisner and Harvey awards for “Fax from Sarajevo”.

He was inducted into the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame (Harvey Awards) in 1997 and the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 1998. He received the Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Cartoonists Society in 2009.
