Although in his seventies, Sergio Aragonés shows no signs of slowing down. The legendary cartoonist of Mad Magazine and Groo the Wanderer will soon launch a new ongoing series at Matt Groening's Bongo Comics called, aptly enough, Sergio Aragonés Funnies. While the master has been working in a relatively traditional narrative mode for quite a while with various The Simpsons titles for Bongo, Funnies will be a direct dose of anarchic Aragonés straight into the brain.


Shipping monthly starting in July, Sergio Aragones Funnies will be a sort of comic book piñata for Aragonés fans, featuring all-new work in a wild assortment of flavors.

Each issue offers an assortment of autobiographical anecdotes, perplexing puzzles, slap-happy short stories, as well as Sergio's unique and hilarious pantomimes and gags. With this new series, the world's most beloved cartoonist continues to prove that humor is truly a universal language!

Fans of Aragonés' Simpsons work need not worry, for the cartoonist will continue to work on those Bongo titles as well, as the company co-founder Bill Morrison told Comic Book Resources back in December.
