Francis Porcel got his interest in comic art through the publications of the Spanish publishing house Bruguera and artists like Uderzo and Giménez. He enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Barcelona at the age of 19, and studied there for three years. He befriended fellow comic artists like Sergio Garcia. He published his debut comic album 'La Cité des Morts' with Magemultimedia at age 22. By 2003, he teamed up with French scriptwriter Jean-David Morvan to create the series 'Reality Show' for Dargaud. He has also participated in the sixth book in Morvan's collective project 'Les Chroniques de Sillage' and worked with Zidrou on the praised World War I graphic novel 'Les Folies Bergère' in 2012.

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.
