I Love This Funny Mustached SOB

I’m going to get heavy with another set of Groo posts soon, but in the meantime I’d like to point out a sub-set of weirdo collectorism: Sergio Aragones doodles. Sure, they’re sketches, but really they’re doodles. The best doodles in the world. And apparently people recognize this because some of these go for a healthy bit of scratch.

I love this man. Seriously, if I hadn’t already gotten my boyhood wish of being adopted by Sergeant Slaughter at age 14, Sergio Aragones would be my choice of father. Because what some people don’t understand is built into the DNA of these doodles is real heart. A sentimentality that isn’t contrived. He’s responsible for one of the two comics that I’ve had to choke back tears from. Think about that. Dude draws misshapen cartoon faces and body proportions that would make a anatomist cringe. BUT HE KNOWS HUMAN ANATOMY WELL ENOUGH TO FIND MY GODDAMN HEART.

Some auctions. Overpriced? No.
