Erik Viktor Einar Lagerwall was the first Swedish artist that was hired by the Danish Gutenberg in the mid-1960s. He was therefore one of the earliest artists of the Danish Disney production. He was at certain points inspired by Italian artists like Giovan Battista Carpi. He mainly did artwork for inserts in Kalle Anka & Co. and advertising material, but also for some stories in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He has drawn comics with most Disney characters, such as 'Little Bad Wolf', 'Donald Duck', and 'Mickey Mouse'. He is considered one of the most talented Scandinavian Disney artists.

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.
