Gundala by Hasmi

Hasmi is an Indonesian artist from Yogyakarta. He is the creator of the classic Indonesian superhero 'Gundulu', that first appeared in comic books published by Ketjana Agung Publishing in 1969. The comic, about a student who becomes a superhero after being struck by lightning, is strongly inspired by American comics, but also has strong references to Indonesias culture. A movie with the character was made in 1983, and more recently, the character was revived for another 'Gundala' film (2009).

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.
