Gus Arriola and Gordo

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials,

Gus ArriolaI never got to read Gordo when it was syndicated - it never ran in any papers in my area when I was a kid. It was always a strip that I read about, instead of actually reading. That changed as I got older and got to read longer runs of of it. It deserves all the praise it gets for its gentle humor and its brilliant design. You can read comics on the all day long, but it’s one panel at a time. To appreciate the craftsmanship of a Gordo strip, you need to take in the whole thing. The guy was just great, and he deserved a much wider audience and he deserves to be read and experienced still today. With comics in this Golden Age period of archival reprint heaven - c’mon, even Gasoline Alley is getting collected - Gordo should be right there with everyone else. (I’m looking at you, Dean Mullaney)!

Continuing my series on cartooning and cartoonists, Gus wrote about himself and his work back in 1964. This is pulled from an oversized saddle-stitched magazine from Allied Publications with the creatively-challenged title These Top Cartoonists Tell How They Create America’s Favorite Comics. It featured an introduction by Beetle Bailey’s Mort Walker and was compiled by Allen Willette.

Here’s Gus on Gus and Gordo:

Mel Gibson Film Sparks Protests in Mexico

Mel Gibson‘s new film has sparked protests in Mexico.

The 54-year-old actor has caused controversy over scenes being shot at the Ignacio Allende prison in the eastern state of Veracruz. The project - believed to be How I Spent My Summer Vacation - forced 214 inmates to be sent to at least four other detention centers in the country to accommodate the set.

The prisoners were escorted from the jail - which usually houses 1,000 convicts - by police and soldiers between midnight on Friday until roughly 3:00 am on Saturday morning last weekend. Those transported during the operation have been held on murder, robbery, drug trafficking, kidnapping and other serious charges.

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag

UPDATE: As we had expected, MTV is currently down in Mexico getting footage for the upcoming season of The Hills.

Apparently we are in an era of change.

Although many predicted and Spencer Pratt would be together forever, the couple did actually did something many did not foresee last week. The love-to-be-hated pair eloped in a private ceremony in Mexico…and there wasn’t a film crew in sight. (Or so we think.)

According to Perez Hilton, the 15-minute service was held just outside Cabo San Lucas at the One & Only Palmilla Resort. “The minute we said our vows, I couldn’t stop crying,” the 22-year-old new bride said of the event. (Was it because she instantly regretted tying the knot?)

Joe Jonas and Camilla Belle vacationing in Mexico

Although most people didn’t know that Joe Jonas and Camilla Belle had been dating until late last week, it turns out the two had already been spending quality time together. According to Us Weekly, this picture of the actress with the brothers was taken in Mexico back on November 9. This means Joe and Camilla were vacationing together just weeks after the breakup with Taylor Swift. (I guess life moves a lot more quickly when you’re a celebrity.)

Interestingly enough, it looks as if Jonas may have been seeking out Camilla months before they ever met. After the jump, you can see the 19-year-old reference Belle in a video made back in March.
