Michiel Budel studied Illustration and Theater Design at the Minerva Art Academy in Groningen. He subsequently held several office jobs and studied to become an art teacher. He has published his drawings and comics on his website slechtemeisjes.nl since 2011, and he has also promoted his short comic stories on Twitter and Facebook. The small independent New York-based publisher Secret Acres has collected Budel's comics in book format in 2012 under the title 'Wayward Girls'. Michiel Budel draws his inspiration from the work of Joost Roelofsz and film audio commentaries by directors and film connaisseurs.

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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
