Olivier Martin did several art studies, and began his career in several fanzines with his academy friends (known as the "group of Nantes"). He won the first prize at the comics festival of Perros Guirrec in 1996. He joined the atelier La Boîte, where he met his future scenarist Eric Omond. He did his first mini album along with Olivier Supiot in 1998, the 1001 Nights inspired 'Erzorum'. Supiot also helped Martin on the first episode of 'Sang et Encre', a series written by Omond and published at Delcourt. With Philippe Menvielle, he began the 'Crypto' series in 2004.

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.
