A week of art (Spanish edition): Fernando de Felipe

Let’s finish (for now, might do another one over the weekend) with another great artist: Fernando de Felipe … Unfortunately retired from comics (like German García), he seems to be working in cinema now, which is a real pity. Books like ADN and Marketing & Utopía have a lot to do with a lot of people in my generation liking comics that pushed the boundaries. His (and his writing collaborators’) characters, more than often psychotically obsessed, and the claustrophobic stories were a breath of fresh air compared to what the market was offering in the 80’s and 90’s.

In any case, another one of those creators whose work you should probably look out for. You can actually find his adaptation of Victor Hugo’s The Man Who Laughs here … And what kind of monster would I be if I didn’t recommend the brand new David Hine and Mark Stafford’s adaptation of the same story?
