Pierre Degournay worked for the French Opera Mundi agency from 1950 to 1969. He was specialized in comic adaptations of novels for the daily press. He adapted Jules Vernes' 'Michel Strogoff', 'Le Tour du Monde en 80 Jours' and 'Les Enfants du Capitaine Grant' to comics, as well as two episodes of 'Rouletabille' by Gaston Leroux (in Le Parisien Libéré). He also did romance novels, such as 'La Fauvette du Moulin' by Emile Richebourg. He has also worked on so-called "vertical comics", like 'Pontcarral', 'Maria Chapdelaine', 'Les Hommes en Blanc', but most notably 'O.S.S. 117'. The latter was continued later on by Walter Fahrer.

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.
