About Comics Shop Lambiek
Lambiek is the world's oldest comic shop and sequential art gallery, in the center of Amsterdam. Founded in 1968 by Kees Kousemaker, it has always been a popular landmark on the Kerkstraat, a charming street between the Leidsestraat and Spiegelstraat, near the Leidseplein.
Lambiek has a global reputation for its impressive collection of comics and art from around the world, with many genres and eras, and is famous for being a hotspot for comic artists, collectors and fans. Festive openings of artist expositions in the gallery have become legendary, and we host many special events such as book presentations, workshops and the annual 24 Hour Comics Day.
Lambiek.Net, online since 1994, brings you the Comiclopedia - the comics compendium with nearly 12,000 comic artists featured from many countries around the world. We are always looking for some worthy new artists, and we welcome your comments and updates.
