Gommaar Timmermans, better known as Got, is the son of the famous Belgian writer Felix Timmermans. He studied advertisement and ceramics at the Academy of Antwerp. He followed in the footsteps of his father and started out writing stories for Kuifje and Ons Volkske from 1950, often illutrated by Bob De Moor. In addition, he did an occasional cartoon in the German magazines Quick and Neue Illustrierte.

He was present in the children's magazine Pats from the first issue in September 1962. There, he drew 'Fideel, de Fluwelen Ridaar', 'De Nonsensikale Tweehoofdige Gevlekte Filodendron', 'Arabella, de Geleerde Slak', 'Pepijn' and 'De Wonderwinkel', as well as several illustrations. He was also present in Zondagmorgen with the stop-comic 'Sylvester Beukenoot' in 1963 and the 'Batman' parody 'Gabriƫl Gagman' in 1966. In 1972, he joined De Nieuwe, for which he drew 'De Nieuwe Ark'. In addition, he did 'De Palavers van Savarin' in Belgische Avenue and 'Iamboree' and 'Weber' in Knack. He drew three fairytale children's comics in Rosita ('Het Zondagskasteel', 'De Kip, De Keizer en De Tsaar' and 'De Grote Ballonrace').

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.
