The Amazing Gordo

Tuesday Comic Strip Day.

I have shown samples of Gus Arriola's Gordo before, but this time I have a huge load of color Sundays from a new stack of newspapers I recieved. I added the two I have shown earlier. A sruprisingly modern strip even early on, this one is a favorite of many artists even though very little from this period has been colleted.

I love the colours and the elegant design. And his animals have such great expressions! - many thanks.

GORDO is horribly overdue for a book collection. Even just a survey of the Sundays, in color, would be welcome! Gus Arriola was an inspired artist and a decent storyteller. He needs more respect and attention!

Thanks for posting this bouquet of lovely late '50s Sundays!
