Patrick Cerf, who works under the pseudonym Trap, was born in Lyon. He studied Decorative Arts in Strasbourg in 1988, where he met his future scenarist Nicolas Hubesch. They started cooperating regularly, at first self-publishing their work, later with several jobs for the press. They created several series with strange names, such as 'Les Invasions Inconséquentes', 'Aventures Inopinées', 'Pigeon's Club' and 'La Seule Vraie Méthode de Bande-Dessinée à Distance des professeurs Hübsch et Trap'. The publishing house Milan has published their series 'Aux Frontières du Quaternaire'. Trap lives and works in Saint-Gilles, near Brussels. He also does illustration work.

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.
