In 1962 they created the heroic humorous comic 'I Tre Marines', about three marines in Mexico. From 1966 to 1981, the two brothers worked for Jeunesse publishers in France, where they created the 'Tarzan' clone 'Kali', which was situated in the forests of India. In the late 1970s they realized some stories of 'Mister No', as well as the western 'Judas' (artwork in cooperation with Ivo Pavone).

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.
