Poktana, by Park Ki-jeong

Born in Yongjeong, Park Ki-jeong lived in Seoul after the Liberation. His literature studies influenced him in his comics storytelling. He started his career in the Jungang Ilbo daily with the 'Gongsujae' strip in 1956. He also produced numerous comics based on actualities and dramatic stories in several newspapers. Park Ki-jeong's dramatic stories, such as 'Dojeonja', reflect the transition between the dark past of the country and a future full with hope. Especially in the 1960s, Park Ki-jeong stood out for his narrative qualities.

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.
