In 1983, Meglia made his first short comic stories for publisher Record, and in the three years that followed, he worked mainly in the animation field (a.o. on 'The Smurfs', 'The Flintstones' and 'Scooby Doo'). He teamed up with Carlos Trillo in 1987, and started 'Irish Coffee', a series about a detective with supernatural gifts. Also with Trillo, Meglia launched the 'Cybersix' series in 1991, a series in which he intensively uses the computer. In the second half of the 1990s, he settled in Spain and began working for the US market. He cooperated on Dark Horse titles like 'Star Wars: Underworld' and 'Spyboy', as well as DC's 'Superman/Tarzan: Sons of the Jungle', 'Crimson', 'Adventures of Superman' and 'Monster World', and Marvel's 'Elektra'. In 2005, he created the series 'Canari' with Crisse. Carlos Meglia passed away, at the top of his game, on 15 August 2008 at the age of 50.

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.
