Josep Marti – Senior Stripper

We are a week late in honoring Spanish cartoonist Josep Marti who was born February 28, 1932
and is now eligible for our Senior Stripper Club for cartoonists aged 90 and over.

Spanish artist Josep Marti i Capell has drawn for various European publishers. He started out with realistic western and war stories for the pocket books of the British Fleetway and Thomson agencies…

He was also present at Editorial Ferna, where he drew ‘El Pequeño Grumete’ between 1953 and 1957, as well as several western titles. He eventually took on a caricatural style, and commenced a large production for the German market. In the 1970s, he illustrated the series ‘Ben’s Bande’ in Yps with texts by Peter Wiechmann.

For the Kauka Verlag, he drew the short-lived series ‘Furor Teutonicus’ (or ‘Die Teutonen’) in Primo in 1974, as well as a revamped version of ‘Tom und Biber’ for Kauka Gold Comic, called ‘Tom Dooley’.

Throughout his career, he has been mainly affiliated with the Bardon Art agency in Barcelona.

What little we find about Josep is at the Lambiek Comiclopedia entry,
with a bit more information at Bear Alley.

We wish Josep un feliz cumpleaños atrasado.
