Mario Malouin is a artist, publisher, editor, distributor and writer and due to all these activities, one of the few artists that can actually make a living from comics in Quebec. He began his career at age 15 in the weeklies L'Appel and Rond-Point, for which he created his first character, 'Gros Magnon'. He launched the magazine B.D. Plouf in 1974, and this magazine ran for two years. In 1984, he made his album debut with 'Une Saison Dans La Vie d'Arthur Leroy', a comics parody on radio personality André Arthur. He was also present in the magazine Pare-Chocs. He was among the first artists of the magazine Safarir in 1987, and began a collaboration with the weekly 7 Jours in 1992. There, he drew the television parody 'Le Monde Du Spectacle' (later retitled to 'Le Monde de la Télé'). In 1993, he drew 'Le Bobo' in Zeppelin. He remained one of the principal contributors to Safarir, for which he created among others 'Les P'tits Montres', 'Les Aventures d'Alphonse', 'Grokon le Monstre', 'Guerre... Épais', 'Drôlement Piquant' and 'Au Pied du Grand Totem'.

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.
