In 1970, he took over the famous espionage series 'Modesty Blaise' from Jim Holdaway. He continued the strip until 1978. Starting in 1976, he was also present in the French market with some episodes of Chéret's 'Rahan' in Pif Gadget. In 1978, Romero teamed up with Avenell to create the science-fiction series 'Axa', which appeared in The Sun. In 1987, he returned on the 'Modesty Blaise' strip again until the late 1990s.

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.
