The Thing and Groo the Wanderer



I have been a fan of Sergio Aragones ever since I was a kid and would squint to see all of the tiny marginal cartoons in Mad Magazine. I would love to see all of those marginals collected in one volume some day. Aragones' contributions to that magazine were easily my favorite part. I would even watch Dick Clark and Ed McMahon's Bloopers and Practical Jokes just to see the little animated sequences by Aragones. I was always happy to see him working with Marvel and DC, be it in Plop!, Bat Lash, House of Mystery or his parody specials... he just has one of those cartooning styles that never fails to brings a smile to my face.

I've posted this on the blog before, but it is appropriate here - a Groo and Rufferto sketch by the man himself:

Awesome! :)

I was curious - where did you find that drawing of the Thing? There was a similar one for Thing/Snoopy, though I didn't know the artist on that one either.

Both were found via Google - I'm not sure of the artists either!
