Alexander Lam, who uses the pseudonym Hallie Lama, was born in Loosdrecht and attended The Utrecht School of the Arts, but stayed for only one year. He had his first cartooning job in 1998-99, when he illustrated the stories of 'Zoenvis en Knuffelbeer' by Harmen Lustig and Steven de Munnik in the ID&T magazine Slam!. He then took a break from drawing for several years. By 2004, he resumed his activities by contributing webcomics to several sites.

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.
