Traditional Chinese comics, commonly known in China as “lianhuanhua”, is typically comic-strip style picture book depicting Chinese traditional stories or novels; the name in Chinese essentially translates to “linked pictures” or “serial pictures”.
Traditional Chinese comics is unique in style with characteristics of Chinese traditional art, including, for example, “baimiao” (meaning “white reproduction”, a brush technique in Chinese painting that produces a finely controlled, supple ink outline drawing without any color or wash embellishment).
Traditional Chinese comics started to gain popularity in China in the 1920s in Shanghai, and entered its “golden age” between 1949 (the inception of the People’s Republic of China) and 1966 (before the Cultural Revolution) in China, becoming an important part of children’s educational readings and also adults’ entertainment, with numerous prestigious artists contributing to some of the best works of Chinese comics of all times.
