Thoughts on Sergio Aragones?
>>
Literally who

Non-American comics are barely known on /co/
Even the Beano is uncommonly talked about.
>>
>>90531856

I read his Blair Witch parody a little while ago.

It was somewhat amusing.
>>
Good cartoonist, which means nobody knows him.
>>
>>90531925
He's done art for mad magazine for decades, as well as Groo the Wanderer. Maybe not a household name but if you were born before 2000 odds are one has seen his strips.
>>
Sergio Aragones killed Marty Feldman and drew a comic strip about it.
>>
>>90531856
He´s a pretty good cartoonist, and he even had an interesting life before working in MAD. Jorge Gutiérrez (El Tigre creator) has a very funny anecdote about him. Plus, he studied architecture.
>>
Probably the only guy who could get away with explaining economics with a cartoon about a warpathing lunatic
>>
>>90531925
How about you go fuck yourself with a stick. 9/10, I am mad.

I really like him, his wordless cartoons in MAD are great and I like his style.

Interview with Sergio Aragaones by Stan Lee in The Comic Book Greats

Damn, this man is a drawing machine!
>>
Meet him at comixon last year and got a photo and a comic with autograph.
>>
>>90531856
Love him, mastered gag based strips without the use of any dialogue whatsoever.
>>
>>90531856
I've only read his Groo and that issue in DC's artist anthology(forgot the name)
>>
>>90531925
The Beano (& Dandy) is uncommonly talked about because it's utter shit. Good for only bored children with nothing to do.
>>
Still one of the fastest cartoonists out there!
>>
Hoping to meet him at a comic con this year, I've heard he's absolutely lovely

>>90533269
Solo
>>
>>90531856
His DC parody was on-fucking-point.
>Is it a mugging or are they telling Batman's origin again?
>>
>>90533361
>Hoping to meet him at a comic con this year
Me too; both Sergio and Stan Sakai will be heading to the UK later in the year and I'm trying to figure out what I want them to sign.

He rocked the stache.
Got a nice cameo in Natacha as a CIA agent after showing LA to Walthery.

And here we see the retard in its natural habitat.

I thought he died.
>>
>>90531925
Awesome bait. Unless truly retarded.

>>90531856
Oldfag here, and I purchased and read Mad Magazine during the mid 70's through the mid 80's. Sergio Aragones was a pure drawing machine, much like his cohorts at the mag. Sergio and Don Martin literally carried the thing with their talent.

And then there's Groo. Holy shit, the first 50 or so issues of that had so much work put into it. The man is a goddamned legend, period.
>>
He is based
>>
I don't know much about him as a person, but I like his stuff.
>>
I remember he occasional drew "find the item" for Weekly World News.

Kinda upset at Mad because it's like 30% Trump jokes now and there's only like 5 or 6 margin doodles per issue when there used to be 12 or so

I would wax his mustache.
If you know what I mean.
>>
Almost GOAT level cartoonist. Groo is brilliant. Throwaway Mad gags are brilliant. His 60s/70s DC stuff is severely underrated (Plop, gags in the horror books, he even wrote westerns).
>>
>>90535895
Hah so you're doing the Lakes too? Been before?

I'm hoping to meet Jason too. Serious lineup for a UK con
>>
>>90540519
Holy shit yeah, his Bat Lash book with John Severin is a thing of beauty. Fanboy is great too, if a bit dated now
>>
>>90541541
This will be the first time to Lakes for me. I'm going for Stan Sakai, but I'll try and catch Sergio as well.

>tfw Al Jaffee is still alive and working for MAD at 96 years old
>>
>>90531856
one of the greatest and funniest cartoonists ever. certainly one of MAD's individual best idiots along with Jaffee and DeBartolo. The marginals he drew in the '70s always crack me the fuck up.
>>
>>90531856
That guy can't still be alive, can he?

Fucking classic though. One of the blessed few in the MAD rooster that was actually funny.
>>
>>90541747
Super sad about Duck.
>>
>>90542000
>That guy can't still be alive, can he?
79 and still working
>>
Seems like a sweet old guy. Kinda bummed that he hates comic piracy, but I guess I can't blame him.
>>
I found some early Sergio in an old DC Archie ripoff book.
>>
>>
>>

Sergio is a great guy and an amazing cartoonist. I met him several times when I was younger, living in SoCal and doing a lot of smaller local cons/shows. It's not just that he's fast, it's like his art is pure *instinct*. He'd be sitting at a table, looking you in the eye and having a nice conversation, and meanwhile his drawing hand was moving on friggin' automatic pilot, scribbling out tons of great stuff without his even looking at it! Nothing but respect for the man.

He looks like my grandpa and dresses like my grandpa, even has the same mustache(Sergio has the better looking one tho) that my grandpa has. My grandpa has a better looking hairline though, they are almost the same age too. They look pretty darn alike, it must be the Spanish blood.
>>
He's good but I prefer Tom Bunks work
>>
>>90531856
He's a cool guy

>>90532224
this too
>>
>>90531925
YOU FUCKING CUNT GET OFF THIS BOARD

*Breathe*

One of the best humour cartoonists in the biz--EVER.
And he can charm the knickers of any woman, or so I hear...so, yeah, one of the greats. Groo will always be something special.
>>
>>90533058
I heard his Dad was in POUM

Haven't read the DC one, but his take on Marvel was fantastic.
