Pol Dom was born in Antwerp, Belgium, but lived in The Hague, the Netherlands, since 1927. He was educated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and was active as a (watercolor) painter, illustrator (a.o. 'De Kameleon', 'Kruimeltje'), etcher, sculptor and caricaturist. He was member of the Pulchri Studio in The Hague. Dom was author of several small books for jam factory De Betuwe, before the company began its series of 'Flipje' comic books. Other artists for De Betuwe booklets at the time were Harmsen van Beek, Daan Hoeksema and Jan Lutz.

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.
