He produced comic material for companies like Fawcett, Pines, Street and Smith, New Friday, and Marvel. After three years Binder closed his shop and went to work for the studio of C.C. Beck. In 1946 he resigned the studio to pursue his personal art career.

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.
