comic art by Yoshiharu Tsuge

Yoshiharu Tsuge was born on the isle of Oshima and raised by his mother. He made his comic debut in 1953 with various creations, like 'Fukuwajutsushi' (the story of a ventriloquist) and 'Nezumi'. His short story 'Numa' surprised his public and was praised with enthusiasm by intellectuals. In his pages, he used a sophisticated and personal type of storytelling that intermingled dream with reality. His style influenced a lot of artists, which can be clearly seen in the magazine Garo. His comic credits include 'Neji-Shiki' and 'L'Usine d'√Čtamage de Oba'.

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.
