Charilaos Theodorou was born in Piraeus, in the harbor of Athens. His first job was drawing maps for the Greek airforces. He took courses in drawing and painting from a Russian professor. He moved to Germany in 1957, where he commenced a study at the Art Academy in Munich. While studying, he drew his first stories with Rolf Kauka's 'Fix und Foxi'. He became stage designer upon graduation, doing the sets for among others 'Räuber Hotzenplotz' and the Karl May festivals in Bad Segebert. In 1972, he returned to Fix und Foxi, where he remained until 1993. Since 1991, he has been active as a commercial artist.

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.
If you want to help us continue and improve our ever- expanding database, we would appreciate your donation through Paypal.
