In his spare time, he assisted Jef Nys on the artwork and writing of Jommeke for a short while. Later on, he created the stop-comic 'Zeezus' with Kris de Saeger under the pen name Scrunch, that got a spot in Kuifje after winning a contest. Haazen stopped 'Zeezus' after about 80 strips, and moved over to Spirou/Robbedoes in 1983 with the shortlived gag series 'Piccolo Bello' in cooperation with Marck Meul.

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.
