Jean-Florian Tello studied at the Academy of Fine Arts of Valence, where he studied graphic design and multimedia. He felt the academy wasn't his thing, so he decided have a try at comics at the ESI (École Superieure de l'Image) of Angoulême. This didn't work out well, so Tello was about to return to Valence, when he met the scenarist Denis-Pierre Filippi at a festival. They started a collaboration, which resulted in the 'Marshall' series, that appeared at Humanoïdes Associés from 2002. Tello has also illustrated an episode of 'La Geste des Chevaliers Dragons' written by Ange at Vents d'Ouest. Jean-Florian Tello died in the night of 31 December 2003 and 1 January 2004, at the age of only 25.

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.
