Goodbye, by Yoshihiro Tatsumi

Yoshihiro Tatsumi is the initiator of the Japanese graphic novel, called the gekiga style ("dramatic pictures"). His comics deal with the human mind and condition, especially in the working class society, such as his 1956 thriller 'Black Blizzard', about two escaped convicts, and 'Goodbye', a story about occupied Japan. Canadian publisher Drawn & Quarterly has recently started to publish Tatsumi's works in annual anthologies, edited by Adrian Tomine. The first book was 'The Push Man', collecting his work from 1969.

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.
