After studying architectural techniques, Pierre Larouche went to work in comics. Adapting the pseudonym Prouche, he created the first comics album with 'Electrozz et Bozz' in 1983. In the following two years, he drew two more albums with these characters. In 1988, he came up with 'Le Dessin par les Formes Géométriques'. That same year, he began a remarkable comics biography of Alphonse Desjardins in the review Ma Caisse. The completion of 'La Grande Aventure d'Alphonse Desjardins' the following year, earned him the prize of Most Promising Artist at the First Francophone Comics Festival in Quebec. In 1992, he began a series of small books called 'La Ville de Pierre Boucher', which were published by Éditions Coeur de Pomme.

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.
