Alfonso Azpiri, 1947-2017
Spanish comic artist and illustrator Alfonso Azpiri passed away a few hours ago.
Azpiri was one of the many graphic artists whose works I cherished.
Wikipedia classifies him in the “adult oriented” field, but his stories, that ranged from science fiction to horror, while often incredibly racy, were also a fun mix of caricature and satire, and his pneumatic, big-haired trademark female characters were both sexy and absurd, sultry and silly.
With the character of Lorna, he created a silly, naughty mix of Star Wars and Barbarella.
Here is a small gallery of his works, in memoriam.
And yes, depending on where you are, some of this might be considered NSFW.
