Doraemon, by Fujio Fujiko

Fujio-Fujiko is the pseudonym of two inseparable manga artists, Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motoo Abiko. Together, they have made a number of popular comics for kids. Their collaboration started with 'Obake no Q Taro' in 1964, about a little ghost. Their big success came with the creation of the cat-robot 'Doraemon' in 1970. It became immensely popular all through the East and was soon made into animation and numerous merchandising products.

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.
