Harry Baljet was the author of the comic strips for the monthly children's magazine Ping, that was published by the Raiffeissen (Rabo) Bank from 1966 until 1983. Baljet wrote the stories of 'Ping-Li-Ping', 'Buffalo Bill' and 'Ruimte-patrouille SP-3', that were all illustrated by Gerard van Straaten (Sidoan). Baljet himself provided the art for illustrations, covers and the comic strip 'Kleine Ping'. Some of the comics from Ping were collected in the 'Ping boek' in 1973.

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.
