The Chinese Hero, by Ma Wing-shingThe Chinese Hero, by Ma Wing-shing

Ma Wing-shing started his comics career at the age of fifteen, when he first published comics such as 'The Experiment of the Devil', 'Five Brothers' and 'Charming' in magazine Ching Bo. He joined Jademan Comics, the publishing company of Wong Yuk-long, in the 1980s. There he created 'The Chinese Hero', which became one of Hong Kong's best selling manga. He founded his own company in 1989 and started magazine Tin Ha Pictorial, for which he created the comics 'The North and South Poles' and 'Wind and Cloud'. This last comic was made into a movie, as was 'The Chinese Hero'. Ma Wing-shing has also regularly collaborated with other artists, such as Siu Kit (on 'Black Leopard'), Yuan Ga-bo (on 'God of Kings') and Fung Chi-ming (on 'Enemy of Heaven').

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.
