In early 2003, he became freelance collaborator with Studio Vandersteen, where he has cooperated on 'Suske en Wiske' short stories with Marc Verhaegen and later Luc Morjaeu. Since 2006 he is mainly involved in cooperating on the scripts with Peter van Gucht. He began his animal comic 'Café Cowala' in P-magazine in that same year. The first book was published in 2012, the same year that De Roover announced to put his strip on-hold for a while.

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.
