Captain Tsubasa, by Yoichi Takahashi

Born in Tokyo, sports fan Yoichhi Takahashi began his career in 1981, when he created his famous soccer manga 'Captain Tsubasa' in Shonen Jump. The series ran for 8 years, and was also turned into an anime version. From 1988, Takahashi has been working on new sports mangas, such as '100 M. Jumper' (about athletics, in 1988), 'Ace' (about baseball, in 1989) and 'Chibi' (about boxing). In 1993, he returned to 'Captain Tsubasa' with a new series of new manga and anime projects, making his character from boy prodigy to World Cup superstar.

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.
