Hervé Boivin worked for a fanzine while pursuing his art studies. He decided to become a professional comic artist after learning the finer points of the profession from Lidwine, Lepage and Plessix. He started his career at a small publishing house, Treize Étrange, that published 'Les Mésaventures de Jan L'Oli' and 'Le Petit Chat Huant'. Afterwards, he made posters and backgrounds for a theater group. The scenarist David Chauvel found Boivin's style appropriate for one of his scenarios. This resulted in the detective comic 'Trois Allumettes'. Boivin and Chauvel continued their cooperation with 'Lili et Winker', that started in 2001. Hervé Boivin developed more graphic styles, being influenced by artists like Rabaté, Aristophane and Blutch.

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.
