Gunnm, by Yukito Kishiro

Yukito Kishiro studied at the Art Institute of his birth city Tokyo, and then focused on a career as a mangaka. From 1985 to 1988 he created series like 'Kikai' and 'Kaikosei'. In 1990, he created his wellknown apocalytic cyborg series 'Gunnm' ('Battle Angel Alita'), published by Shueisha. The first run of the series ran until 1995.

Kishiro restarted it in 1997 and in 2000, he launched the spin-off 'Cyborg Last Order', dealing with Gunnm's main character's origin, in Ultra Jump. In 1997, Shueisha published 'Hito', a collection of Kishiro's earliest work. Yukito Kishiro's work is characterized by its extreme violence and apocalyptic sequenses, but still contains a lot of humor and emotion.

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.
