comic art by Feng Zikai

After graduating, Feng Zikai studied music and art in Japan before returning to China in 1922 to teach in Shanghai. Later he worked as an editor at the Kaiming Press. It was at this time that his paintings and cartoons began to be published. Feng Zikai was considered the founder of modern cartoons in China after his 'Zi Kai Man Hua' was published in 1924. 'Hu Sheng Hua Ji' was created between 1927 and 1973, during his fifty-year-long career as an artist. Long after his death in 1975, Feng's essays and cartoons are still popular with the Chinese public.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
