Piet van der Maaden was a Dutch painter, who worked mostly on watercolors and gouaches, that were often about freemasonry. He also designed promotional material like posters and maps for the KLM. The KLM also commissioned him to draw the comic story 'De legende van de Vliegende Hollander'. It was written by Hans Kosman and published in book format by Boom-Ruygrok in Haarlem in 1948.

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.
