Martin Rosenthall studied at the High School of Industrial Arts and at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He began working in the comic book field in the late 1940s, starting with several features at Fox Comics. He remained active in the field throughout the 1950s doing art for Orbit (crime), Timely (horror, romance, sports), Ace Periodicals (horror), St. John ('Sinbad the Sailor' and one-page mysteries) and Feature Comics (romance). He assisted Wallace Wood on his romance and crime stories in the late 1940s and George Evans on his 'Classics Illustrated' in the late 1950s. Rosenthall left the field in the mid 1950s to pursue a career in film and television.

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.
