Radar Pictorial, by Man Yong 1965

Man Yong was a Hong Kong artist who was inspired by the popular Japanese samurai movie 'Blind Knight' to start an eight-page daily comic magazine together with Mok Kwan-ngok. The paper, Radar Pictorial, featured an ongoing sword fight comic and became as popular as the movie. It ran from 1965 until the mid-1970s, despite the tremendous strain on the artists to produce eight pages a day. Mok and Man also started the daily Ultraman Pictorial, which only ran for a short time.

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.
