"Old peasant and his grandchildren"

Miao Di was born in Hequ County, Shanxi Province. Nurtured by his mother, who was an expert in the art of scissor-cutting, he began to have a fondness for figured art. He has worked in the Art Department of the People's Daily since 1950. Under the guidance of Hua Junwu, chief of the Art Department, he has gradually plunged himself into cartooning. He won popularity by his serial 'Grandpa and Grandson', carried in the People's Daily in the 1960s.

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.
