El Peque spoke of the character created by Quino, the great cartoonist who died this Wednesday at the age of 88.
The news of Quino’s death this Wednesday, at the age of 88, generated comments around the world. The creations of the great cartoonist went far beyond Argentina, although in particular Mafalda, the character in the strip that was published in the 60s and then became eternal in successive books. And Diego Schwartzman, who in Paris advanced to the third round of Roland Garros, recounted the special link he had with the creation of the Mendoza.
“I grew up, like many other generations, with Mafalda,” said the Argentine tennis player, who learned of the news of Quino’s death at the press conference due to a question from a journalist. He also did not hesitate to describe the strip as “historical”.
He Small, 28, also left a deep reflection on the cartoonist: “This type of people is leaving us and we will have to pay this tribute for all that he left, and that he is going to be there because Mafalda is still there.”
The tennis player, who is going through one of the best moments of his career and is firm in his goal of reaching the top ten in the world rankings, thus added to the multiple repercussions for the death of Quino, one of the cartoonists who marked an era and decisively influenced popular culture.
