Yannick Hodbert was a photographer before he turned to creating comics. Signing with only his first name, he made his debut in 1969, becoming one in a long line of artists to illustrate 'Pif le Chien' in Pif Gadget. In 1976, he created the 'Pif' spin-off series 'Hercule'. Yannick introduced numerous side characters in this series, which he drew until 1994, and was also a regular feature in the German magazine YPS. An new series was started by Bamboo publishers in 2001.

Yannick briefly made a series of his own in Pif Gadget, called 'Les Apprentis Sorciers'. In 1988, he created 'La Morgueluse' with Michel Motti and the characters 'Louping et Tonneau'. In the 1990s, Yannick turned to other magazines, such as Miroir du Cyclisme ('Pierre Lagagne'), Pif Découverte ('Nanouk') and Dauphiné Libéré ('Croglok').

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.
