Rafael Fornes Collado, 1917-2005

The esteemed Cuban cartoonist Rafael Fornes Collado died December 18 in Havana. Collado was responsible for two long-running (or at least well-known and influential) strips, Don Sabino and Jose Delores (portion of one depicted above). The best write-up -- okay, the only write-up -- on Collado I know about is in Italian at the site linked through his name above. That entry includes one or two really nice comics in full (including the one above) and indicates part of what seems like the sad story of a career aborted, or at least altered, by political change.
