Jan Nieuwenhuys was the artist of a 1945 picture booklet about our Canadian liberators in Holland. It was published as a newyear's gift by De La Mar in Amsterdam. Nieuwenhuys also drew a 1948 comic book published by the NIWIN, a healthcare organization for the Dutch in the East Indies. It was called 'Hier en Daarginds', and tells the story of a soldier and his encounters in the islands of the Dutch East Indies during the Indonesian revolution.

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.
