Desorgher remained active for Studio Peyo well into the 2000s, but had his solo breakthrough in 1988 with the series 'Jimmy Tousseul'. Set in Africa, Desorgher could use his childhood memories from the first twelve years of his life, when he lived in Congo. Together with scriptwriter Stephen Desberg, Desorgher made 'Jimmy Tousseul' for Spirou and the publishing house Dupuis until 2000. The series was relaunched at Glénat in 2004, this time with Benoît Despas as the scriptwriter. Since 2007, Desorgher also does the inking for the 'La Scrameustache' albums by Gos and Walt, that are also published by Glénat.

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.
