Jommeke is a Flemish comic strip series in publication since 1955. It was created by Jef Nys and can be defined as a humoristic children's adventure series. Jommeke, an 11-year-old boy, is the series' main protagonist. It was originally published in Kerk en Leven, before moving to Het Volk, where it ran until the newspaper went bankrupt in 2010. Since then it is published in Het Nieuwsblad, De Gentenaar and De Standaard. “Jommeke” is very popular in Flanders and, together with Suske en Wiske the best-selling comic strip in the region. However, its success has always purely remained a Flemish phenomenon, seeing that attempts at foreign translations all failed.

In 1968 Jef Nys directed a live-action film called “De Schat van de Zeerover” (“The Pirate's Treasure”), which was a low-budget adaptation of the eponymous Jommeke album. It was essentially an amateur project, made by him and his family members and starred his own son in the main role.
