He then attended the School of Decorative Arts and the Faculty of Applied Arts in Strasbourg.

After creating his first comic book, based on the game franchise 'Tomb Raider', with Alex Alice and under the pen name Fréon for Glénat in 1999, he turned to freelance illustration. He participated in a variety of collective projects, such as 'Vampires' by Éditions Carabas, before returning to comics with the creation of the science-fiction comic 'Chrome' for Dargaud in 2002. A second book followed in 2005. In that year, Pion also worked with Patrick Delmas on the fantasy one-shot 'Moloch Jupiter Superstar' for Carabas. This was followed by the humorous 'L'Extravagant Monsieur Pimus' in 2006.

Pion teamed up with Mathieu Sapin to create the heroic fantasy serial 'Megaron' for Dargaud in 2007-2009. During the same period he worked with Richard Marazano on the historical comic 'Jérusalem' for Glénat's Vecu collection. Pion has subsequently made 'Coeur de glace' with Marie Pommepuy for Dargaud (2011) and a comic book based on the video game 'Devil May Cry' with Izu for Glénat (2013).

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.
