Kogaratsu, by Michetz

Marc de Groide, who uses the pseudonym Michetz, is fascinated by martial arts. Apart from practicing them, he devotes his entire comics oeuvre to them. He began his career at the studios of Jean Graton. In 1979, he created his first two comic stories featuring samurais: 'Mutsuro' in Tintin and 'Hito le Banni' in Spatial. He went on to create the medieval samurai series 'Kogaratsu' with scripts by Bosse in Spirou in 1983. In addition, Michetz published a portfolio about Japan at the publishing house Ansaldi, and he even appeared as a character himself in 'Le Gang Mazda', by his friends Christian Darasse and Bernard Hislaire. In 1990, he teamed up with Yann to start the series 'Tako' at Glénat.

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.
