After a while, he came up with the cartoon panel feature 'TV Tee-Hees', which appeared in 150 newspapers during the 1960s and 1970s. Later on, Scarpelli pursued a career in comic books. He first worked at Dell Publishing as the artist for comic magazine versions of such TV shows as 'The Beverly Hillbillies', 'Bewitched', 'Hogan's Heroes' and 'Get Smart'.
From there, Scarpelli moved on to major comic book publishers, such as DC, Marvel and Archie Comics. After some years of doing comic books art for Archie comics, Scarpelli was assigned to do the 'Archie' newspaper strip, both daily and Sunday in the 1990s and 2000s.

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.
