Mother Sarah, by Takumi Nagayasu

Takumi Nagayasu disovered the work of Tetsuya Chiba at a very young age. Impressed by its dynamics, he left for Tokyo to start a career in comics. In 1964 he became the assistant of Kenji Namba. While being his Namba's assistant, he drew his first own comic, 'Ofukuro' in 1968. Nagayasu remained in the shadows of his master for many years, until he met Katsuhiro Otomo, who wrote a scenario for him. Together they made 'Mother Sarah', which appeared in 1988. This comic, about a mother searching for her children in a postnuclear world, was published in several other countries. He is also the co-author, with Jiro Asada, of 'Poppoya', a serial about a lonely stationmaster.

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.
