Chotu-lambu by Shehad Ji

Shehab Ji is an Indian comic artist. He grew up in poor conditions. He had to work as a carpenter to earn his living after his parents died and he didn't go to school until after he was ten years old. He started his artistic career with a 1/2 page cartoon, before creating his full 32 page comic series 'Chotu-Lambu' for Diamond Comics in 1958. This was followed by more creations, including 'Manglu Madari-Bandar Bihari' and the silent comics 'Chimpu' and 'Chaman Charlie'.

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.
