Jon Lewis, whose heritage is half Norwegian, grew up in Minnesota. At the age of seventeen, he fell ill for a few years, so he never finished school. Instead, he started making his own mini-comics, taking advantage of the burgeoning mini-comics underground of the late eighties. In 1994, his work won him (as well as his fellow artist Tom Hart) the Xeric Grant, which he used to publish the first issues of the series 'True Swamp'. This series, and the following 'Ghost Ship', featured a fantastic atmosphere, displaying Lewis' interest in Norse folklore and legends. His latest series, 'Spectacles', is more realistic. His cartooning achieves just the right amount of detail to evoke a familiar mood or setting without feeling too real or recognizable.

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.
