Michel Rabagliati grew up reading European comics like 'Tintin', 'Spirou', and 'Gaston' and 'Asterix'. He copied his favorite ones: 'Gaston and Spirou' and 'Les Petits Hommes' (by Pierre Seron). When Rabagliati was fifteen, he stopped drawing comics and concentrated his creative talents in the field of graphic design. After studying typography and graphic design, Rabagliati became a graphic designer and illustrator in 1982. By 1997, he started drawing again. He published his first comic strip, 'Paul à la Campagne' ('Paul in the Country'), in 1999 with the Montreal publisher Les Éditions de la Pastèque.

Series en boeken door Michel Rabagliati op voorraad in de Lambiek Webshop:
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.
