Roland Hill was the first professional comics artist that worked for the Comic Cuts magazine in the 1890s. The magazine originally focused on the work of foreign artists, like Frederick Opper and Wilhelm Busch. Among the new selection of British artists that joined the magazine, was Hill. Along with fellow artists like Frank Holland, Vandyke Brown and Jack Butler Yeats, Hill was a founder of the typical British comics style.

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.
