Skip Williamson's parents didn't allow him to own comic books. Luckily they were unable to stop him from reading them, which had the agreeable side-effect that Williamson had to go and get his comix underground. He liked the underground comix scene so much that he never really left it. When he discovered Harvey Kurtzman, he decided to start making satire.

From Bijou Comix, by Skip Williamson

His first published work came out in 'Help - the magazine for tired minds'. Subsequently, he started doing humorous pieces for various magazines, like 'The Realist', 'The Idiot', and 'Aardvark'. Then he went to Chicago to help Jay Lynch publish the Chicago Mirror, which started out as a magazine, but as the hippie generation proved to be too drugged to get the jokes was changed into a comic book. Ever since then, Skip has been making comix and paintings.

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.
