He eventually settled in New York City, where he took on drawing comics in 1946.

'Aggie' became especially popular in France, where it first appeared in Fillette in 1947, and was continued in a European version drawn by Gérard Alexandre, who signed with the pseudonym Al.G. In America, the series was taken over by Roy Fox after Rasmusson's death in 1962 until 1971.

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.
