Psychonauts, by Motofumi Kobayashi

Motofumi Kobayashi was the artist of Marvel's 'Psychonauts' series. This series was in fact the first manga written by a western script team (Alan Grant and Tony Luke) and illustrated by a Japanese artist. 'Psychonauts' started in 1987 and was an initiative of Gene Pelc, head of Marvel in Japan, who wanted to make a cross-cultural hit. Kobayashi has also drawn 'Cat Shit One', a "Vietnam war" between rabbits and cats.

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.
