Auke Herrema was born in Friesland, The Netherlands in 1956. He studied architecture in Delft and graduated in 1983. Since there were not many jobs in architecture at that time, he became a freelance illustrator and writer. He made his comics debut in 1981, with 'Het is altijd wat'. A year later, he published 'Roze Herfst'. 'Slechte Tijden om te Sterven' appeared in 1988. In 1989, he made the comic 'Een Kleine Verbouwing', published at Loempia and graphically influenced by Joost Swarte. Auke Herrema also makes comics, cartoons and strips for several magazines and companies.

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.
