Crash Carson by Eric Resetar

Eric Resetar was a comics pioneer in New Zealand, being the country's first self-published comics creator. He started publishing comic books while begin a schoolkid in the 1940's. He secured rationed paper from the New Zealand government with the idea that locally-produced comics might improve national morale. Very few of the comics have remained in New Zealand, with most of them were being taken back the United States by US servicemen during World War II.

Resetar continued to self-publish comic books with exiting titles like 'Crash O'Kane: All Blacks On Mars', 'Crash Carson Of The Future', 'Half-Back Comics: The Space Pirates', 'Adventure: Thrills On The Planet Jupiter!', 'Treasure Comics: Black Cobra And The Red Gold', 'Captain Sinister', 'Childrens Xmas Comic' and 'Invisible Smith' throughout the 1950's and 1960's. In recent years, Resetar has been reprinting his old comics with the technology of laser copying. He passed away in Auckland in 2011. The biannual Eric Awards for New Zealand Comics were named in his honor.

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.
