By 1984 he started making comics, contributing to Calafrio and drawing a comic with 'Luca Modesta' for Editora Abril. He also took on drawing for the communication department of the São Paulo subway. In the 1990s he participated in the development of the film 'Cassiopéia' by Clóvis Vieira, one of the first films made completely with the computer.

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.
