Ramón Columba (1891-1959, Argentina)

He worked as a parliamentary stenographer and at the same time began drawing comics for the daily La Razón and the periodical Caras y Caretas. In 1922, he created the periodical Paginas de Columba.
After a long tour through the USA, Columba launched El Tony with his brother Claudio, the first actual Argentine comics magazine. From 1940 to 1946, Columba also worked in the animation field. He launched other magazines, such as Intervalo and Fantasía. He was a founding father of the Argentine association of comic artists.

Buena elección. Sus libros son una referencia para un caricaturista político como yo y también una fuente para ver la política argentina de una época desde la visión de una clase.
Aunque no soy historietista, una vez presenté originales a su editorial a instancias de un amigo. Me rechazaron porque dejé manchas entre cuadritos. Hicieron bien.
