12 Ka-Gatsu, by Mari Okazaki

Mari Okazaki was born in Nagano and spent her childhood in Kansaï. She studied Fine Arts in Tama and upon her graduation she began working as an artist in the advertising field. She left her dayjob in 2000 to focus on manga and illustration. She made her debut as a mangaka with some "shôjos" (girls' mangas). After 'Love Catch', she came up with mangas like 'BX', a romance story about a boxer, 'Yawarakai Kara', a collection of short stories and the college diptych '12 Ka-Getsu'. Her work is also printed in France.

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.
