Peter Koeken studied at the Saint-Luc Academy in Schaarbeek, began working at the Vandersteen studios in 1976. He started out as the inker of the backgrounds in 'Robert en Bertrand' and 'Suske en Wiske', and he reworked German 'Jerom' stories for the Dutch market. He inked Merho's 'Tits' stories, and was the series penciller from 1979 until its cancellation in 1984. He worked as an allround artist for Standaard Uitgeverij for a while, among others making game pages for the Suske en Wiske holiday books. He then associated with Merho again, doing the inking of the series 'Kiekeboe' since 1991.

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.
