It was 1951 when Octave Joly wrote 'Comment naquit la Marseillaise' in cooperation with Jean-Michel Charlier for Dino Attanasio. It was the first 'Belle histoire de l'Oncle Paul' that he wrote and about 1200 followed. Joly was the most productive writer of this educational series of short stories about history that were published in Spirou. Throughout the years, Joly also worked with well-known artists, like Eddy Paape, Victor Hubinon, MiTacq, Jean Graton, René Follet and the Funckens. Apart from the Oncle Paul's, Joly has written 'Stanley' for Hubinon, 'Marco Polo' and 'Tom et Nelly' for Uderzo and 'Winston Churchill' for Paape.

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.
