Anmitus-hime, by Shosuke Kurogane

Shosuke Kurogane was the author of the popular girl's manga 'Anmitsu-hime' ('Princess Beanjam'), that appeared in Shojo magazine between 1949 and 1955. Although being a male artist, Kurogane knew how to reach his female readership with this sweet comic about a medieval princess, that caused the magazines sales to lift the magazine's sales to 700,000 copies.

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.
