He joined Timely in 1942, where he worked as an interim editor during Stan Lee's World War II service. He was part of the art team that produced movie-based and funny animal comics for Terrytoon Comics, Mighty Mouse and Animated Funny Comic-Tunes. He worked on such features as 'Dinky', 'Frenchy Rabbit', 'Floop and Skilly Boo', 'Posty the Pelican Postman', and 'Krazy Krow'.

Upon Lee's return in 1945, Fago moved on to work as an independent comic book artist and children's book illustrator for Golden Press and the Pendulum Illustrated Classics series. In 1948, he took over the newspaper strip 'Peter Rabbit', which he continued for 14 years. He was the younger brother of funny animal artist Al Fago.

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.
