Upon his return in Canada, he began to work on his first big comics project, a 25 page story for the Belgian magazine Tintin, which remained unpublished. He then sent his work to the publisher Glénat, who was interested. Together with writer Pierre Dubios, he began created the series 'Pixies' for this publisher.

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.
