Marnix Rueb was born and bred in The Hague, Holland - as is his popular character 'Haagse Harry' ('Harry from The Hague'). This comic started in 1991 and became famous for its use of the phonetically written slang of The Hague's lower class. Although hard to read for anyone who's not from The Hague, Harry became an instant success all over The Netherlands. So far, several albums have been published and his numerous fans can enjoy Harry's witticisms on a daily basis with the 'Haagse Harry' daily calendar.

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.
