Sergio Cariello has drawn since early childhood. He created the detective 'Frederico' when he was only 11 years old, and this strip was published in his local newspaper. Later on, he went on to do political caricatures for the same newspaper. He went to study at the Joe Kubert School of Art in the 1980s. He won the Dark Horse scholarship for the second year, and started doing his first professional comics work for Caliber Press thanks to his brother, also a comics artist. Cariello's first American work was 'Dragon, the Worlds of HP Lovecraft'. He became a letterer at Marvel. After a fill-in on 'Daredevil', he also began to draw for the company, starting with 'Marvel Comics Presents: Spellbound'. He moved over to DC, where he did 'Deathstroke', 'Guy Gardner', 'Wonder Woman', 'The Green Lantern', 'The Flash', 'Young Heroes in Love', 'Blue Beatle', 'Batman', 'Azrael' and many others. In addition, he has drawn for Todd McFarlane Productions, Disney, Family Life Publishers, Crossgen and ATP. He also began teaching various courses at the Joe Kubert School.

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.
