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)

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.

Henry Boltinoff (19 February 1914 – 19 April 2001, USA) was a comics creator whose career began in the mid-1930s as a freelance magazine cartoonist.

By 1940, he began working at DC Comics creating very short humor strips and panels which were used to fill partial pages. He continued to create primarily for DC but occasionally at Fawcett and Harvey, until the early 1970s.

Boltinoff’s filler strips include ‘Casey the Cop’, ‘Super-Turtle’, and ‘Jerry the Jitterbug’.

He created ‘Dover and Clover’ in 1943, a standard-length humor feature about twin detectives. It ran in “More Fun Comics” and “All Funny Comics” through 1948, with a few more stories in “Detective Comics” in 1950 and 1951.

His final filler creation was ‘Cap’s Hobby Hints’ in the late 1960s. From 1969 to 1971, he created stories in “Date with Debbi” and “Swing with Scooter”.

Boltinoff also worked for newspaper syndication. He drew ‘This & That’ in 1946. In 1960, he took over ‘Nubbin’ and continued it to 1986. He also created ‘Stoker the Broker’ that year, which ran on business pages through the mid-1990s.

Outside the comics community, he is known globally for the ‘Hocus-Focus’ syndicated feature. Readers enjoy spotting the differences between two nearly-identical panels without any language barriers.

Boltinoff received awards from the National Cartoonists Society for his comic-book work (1970) and his newspaper panels (1981).

Shortly after beginning to work for DC, editor Whitney Ellsworth casually complained of overwork and Boltinoff suggested he hire his brother, Murray, as an assistant. Murray Boltinoff edited at DC through the end of the 1980s.
