Miss Lasko-Gross was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and is a graduate of Pratt Institute. Miss (short for Melissa) established herself in the industry as editor of the school's funny, sometimes irreverent comic book, 'Static Fish'. Her work has appeared in Mauled 1, House of Twelve 2.0, and Legal Action Comics #1, among others. She also released 3 issues of her own self-published series 'AIM' and is the author of the autobiographical graphic novels 'Escape from Special' (based loosely on the author's life growing up as a Jewish girl in the suburbs, 2008) and 'A Mess of Everything', that were published by Fantagraphics.

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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
