Abstract

We propose a method for a comprehensive listing of comics and manga authors by combining a VIAF dataset, which internationally shares authority information created in each country, and a national bibliography. Specifically, it combines the dataset based on the descriptions of VIAF and the set of comics and manga authors extracted from comic titles in the Japanese national bibliography. The proposed method revealed that there are Japanese comics and manga authors who are not recognized as such in the Japanese national bibliography and that comics written by many Japanese comics authors are distributed only in Japan.
