Born in Turnu Severin, Cristian Ciomu was the winner of a comics contest held by the magazines Cutezatorii and Pif Gadget in 1970. He published his first comic story in Cutezatorii two years later. He studied in Bucharest, then worked as an architect in Craïova and didn't return to comics until 1991. Since that year, his comic stories have made their appearances in magazines like Prichindel, Mini Azi and Haz în Vacanta. Ciomu is also a musician and composer (he has written a balad about Hugo Pratt's 'Corto Maltese') and the author of several articles about the preservation of the Romanian architectural legacy.

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.
