Because of a heart attack Fer, one of the founding cartoonists of the satirical magazine ‘El Jueves’, dies and that has given rise to numerous publications, always with a very special touch for humor.

His graphic style determinant to recognize it and know publications With which he became known as with the series “Puticlub” and “famous stories” in El Jueves. Just this week when at the beginning of it he drew his last vignette referring to going back to school.

A graphic artist who began his career in publications such as Mata Ratos, En Pantufet, Oriflama and La Prensa and Barrabás before going on to direct the satirical magazine El Papus.

We have to go to the year 1982 to become one of the founders from one of the most important satirical magazines in our country such as Thursday. There he became known at the national level with Puticlub and Fermosas stories with those characters so easy to recognize with their big noses and those bulging eyes.

A story creator who boosted El Thursday magazine to what it is today. Then we can see him in the Avui newspaper, where, merged with Punt, he spent thirty years giving his particular point of view on the current situation in the country.


It was this past monday just when Fer published his last story with a child who shoots the coronavirus with a slingshot. His compilations are also known where some of his most recognized graphic stories are collected and in which he shares comics with illustrators of the stature of Ferreres, Kap, or Napi.

Such a reference of the Spanish cartoon which leaves us today to leave a huge gap with its nice characters and those funny stories; we leave you a current artist with his concise stories.
