Christian De Metter was born in the Parisian area, and studied advertisement for a short while before embarking on an artistic career. He did a variety of commercial jobs, including model making and illustrations for music magazines, and began his first comics project in the early 1990s. The trilogy 'Emma' wasn't published until 2000 in the Trinkel collection of the publishing house Soleil. Between 2001 and 2003 he made the graphic novel diptych 'Le Curé' with Laurent Lacoste for the same collection.

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.
