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)

Edmond Baudoin (born 23 April 1942, France) became a comics creator in his 30s, after working as an accountant. From the mid-1970s, he published stories in “Pilote”, “L’Écho des Savanes”, and other magazines.

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.

Luciana Giussani (19 April 1928 – 31 March 2001, Italy) was a comics writer and publisher.

In 1962, her sister Angela Giussani (10 June 1922 – 12 February 1987) founded the publishing house Astorina, whose first title was Angela’s own creation, “Diabolik”.

Luciana joined the company the following year, also writing for “Diabolik”. She stayed until her retirement in 1999, having taken over as publisher on Angela’s death in 1987.

“Diabolik” was the first Italian comic in pocket-book format. The character is a master thief, created as an anti-hero but over time becoming more inclined to steal from and to thwart only other criminals.

He became very popular and the comic is still published. He has appeared in a movie and on the radio, as a TV series and as an animated TV series, and in a video game.
