Sergio tells the classic tale of the kindly old toymaker who, more than anything in the world, wanted a son…and a wife! Sergio will also delight you with the other love of his youth (besides cartooning)… marionettes! Also, there will be plenty of puns and puzzles to please and perplex you!

By Chuck Dixon, Stephen DeStefano, Derek Drymon, Gregg Schigiel, and various. 


In “Day Off/Off Day,” The Krusty Krab is under SpongeBob! Krabs must keep the humble fry cook from entering the restaurant or (horrors!) face a modest fine for working his employees too hard. But a determined SpongeBob can get through any defenses that Krabs concocts. How far will Krabs go to keep him out? Also, in “Truckin’,” Patrick and SpongeBob face the open road in big rigs. All this plus a pin-up, a choose-your-path comic of Squidward's nightmares, a page of aquatic facts, and a knockout back cover written by Joey Weiser (Caveman in Space), with art by 2011 Reuben Award Cartoonist of the Year, Richard Thompson (Cul De Sac).

Sergio Aragonés, master cartoonist, will delight you with an autobiographical story about his encounter with the preeminent cellist of all time, Pablo Casals, in Acapulco, Mexico in 1960. Add to that a tale about a wandering lion and another about a comic book project from the past, “Sergio’s Inferno.”  Also, there are plenty of guffaws to be had with more of Sergio’s gags and games.


Matt Groening, creator of “The Simpsons” and “Futurama” proudly presents an all-new monthly series by the world’s most famous and most honored cartoonist, Sergio Aragonés (MAD Magazine, Groo the Wanderer). Each issue offers an assortment of autobiographical anecdotes, perplexing puzzles, slap-happy short stories, as well as Sergio’s uniquely hilarious pantomime gags. With this new series, the world’s most beloved cartoonist continues to prove that humor is truly a universal language.


Mr Aragonés became a regular featured artist and writer in Bart Simpson comics beginning with issue #50. His ongoing strip “Maggie’s Crib” appears every month, and he has contributed to various Bongo titles over the past two years. Now, Sergio Aragonés will provide the entire contents of his own monthly title, featuring the pantomime gags he is most known for along with autobiographical stories based on a lifetime of adventures, including his first paying job as a artist at the age of nine and his on set college antics as an extra in the film production of Daniel Boone.  Sergio has traveled all over the world and has met many historical figures, all of which will provide issue upon issue of warmly told, incredibly funny tales. Every issue includes mind-boggling puzzles and games concocted by the one of the most detail-oriented artists in the history of comics.


Sergio Aragonés Funnies #1 will be released on July 20 in direct market comic book stores and at newsstands on August 9th. Sergio Aragonés Funnies is a monthly comic book aimed at readers of all ages.


“Sergio is the master of fast and funny,” says Matt Groening, Bongo Comics founder and publisher, “and it’s an honor to work with him.”


Sergio Aragonés Funnies #1 is available at the Bongo booth (#2519) and at Sergio Aragonés’ booth (I-07) at Comic-Con!

Mr. Burns lays off the entire work force at the nuclear power plant, shuttering every local business, and steering the town into financial ruin. With no jobs available, the Simpsons and the other Springfieldians do what any economically depressed and unemployed person would do, they cross illegally into Canada to make their fortune.
