Al Davison was born with severe spina bifida in 1960 in northern England. Doctors considered him a hopeless case, condemned for life to the inescapable "spiral cage" of his own DNA. But they didn't reckon on the fighting spirit of Al and his parents. His comic book, 'The Spiral Cage', relates in a richly graphic style the trials and joys of growing up "disabled" in English society, and of one man's coming to terms with his physical, artistic and spiritual potential. It was first published in the U.S. in 1988 by Renegade Press. In 1992, his second book, 'The Minotaur's Tale', was published.

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.
