Uma Aventura no Japão, by António Vaz Pereira

António Vaz Pereira was a Portuguese artist whose comics appeared in Camarada. His oeuvre, containing realistic historical works, is not that big, but worth mentioning. In his historical comic 'Uma Aventura no Japão', he depicted the affairs between the Dutch, the Portuguese and the Japanese in the days of the colonies in a very personal way. By giving his characters sentiments of loneliness and nostalgia, he lent them a human dimension, which wasn't customary at the time.

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.
