From Argentina, another great cartoonist, Quino!

He was one of the masters of silent gags:

















Charles Schulz wrote of him: ‘The kind of ideas that he works with are some of the most difficult, and I am amazed at their variety and depth. Also, he knows how to draw, and draw in a funny way. I think he is a giant.’ A great compliment from one giant to another.

Also, we've run out of tags.

I'm sorry but a Quino post without Mafalda just seems wrong somehow. Specially because I vaguely remember a volume which had a silent strip or two.

He is still one of the very best in the world of social and political commentary and I love each and every one of the careful details in those panels.

Awesome!

Also, we've run out of tags.
Yes, we have :(

If you have suggestion of tags to merge, I'm all ears, because I've run out of idea for how to make new spots.

These are excellent! Especially the No Smoking one - I would totally set up sprinklers to re-enact that.

The smashed mirror one made me genuinely laugh out loud and wonder, "What the FUCK happened there?!"

I love all of these, and I really identify with the birdcage one, and the chess one.
