Karl Gardosh was an Israeli caricaturist, illustrator and comic artist, known under the pen name Dosh. Born Gárdos Károly in Hungary in 1921, he emigrated to France in 1946, where he studied comparative literature at the Sorbonne University. Gardosh eventually moved to Israel in 1948 and assumed the first name Kariel. He was one of Israel's best political caricaturists, who worked as a political cartoonist for the Maariv newspaper since 1953. He was also making cartoons and comics for the Jerusalem Post.

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.
