Karl Stephan began his career publishing underground comics in his native South Africa with Igubu, a Cape Town-based publisher of alternative comic magazines. He now lives in the UK, where he is the creator of 'Sparko', the mythos revolving around a strange underground London. It was released as a series of digital comics designed for reading on the PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone and various other technological contraptions by Slave Labor Publishing. Slave Labor will be releasing the series as a (printed) graphic novel in July 2011.

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.
