He contributed his comics to several french, german and swiss publishers. His most popular series, 'Die Himmelsstürmer', started in 1987. In 1998 he decided to do comics fulltime. He had the opportunity in 2002 to illustrate the comic 'Im Land das die Zukunft erfand', designed to represent the Swiss country worldwide. It was translated into thirteen languages and sent to various embassies all over the world.

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.
