Manuel Perales is the artist of the comic adaptation of Pierre Clostermann's novel 'Le Grand Cirque', which appeared in the collection 'Biggles Présente...' at Éditions Miklo. Perales wanted to do an adaptation of the famous World War II pilot's novel since his childhood, and he finally came in touch with him in 1988. Immediately, a tight friendship and collaboration was born between the two men, which resulted in the comics series.

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.
