Luc Cornillon studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Saint-Étienne for five years. With fellow student Yves Chaland, he founded the fanzine L'Unité de Valeur. Two years later, he was noticed by Jean-Pierre Dionnet and he got a job at Métal Hurlant. There, he made pastiches of American and Belgian comics, alone or with Chaland. In 1981 he created 'Diamants Vengeurs' in the Atomium collection of publisher Magic Strip, and he wrote several war stories for Métal Hurlant, collected under the title 'Branle-Bas de Combat' (illustrated by Jacques Terpant).

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.
