Dirk Michiels founded the studios Mormic with Luc Morjaeu in the mid-1980s. The studios produced art for commercial purposes, and for the comics 'Jacobus en Corneel', 'Pingu' and 'Erik of het Klein Insectenboek'. The cooperation with Morjaeu ended in 1997, and Michiels started drawing comics for Suske en Wiske Weekblad. With Marc Legendre, he made a short story of 'Sam' and the series 'Het Scream-team' in 1999-2000. He also helped Swerts and Vanas on the inking of backgrounds. He moved to Canada in 2000, where he does illustrations for among others children's books and coloring books.

Series and books by Dirk Michiels in stock in the Lambiek Webshop:
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.
