Ismael, by José Rivera

At age 24, José Rivera studied humorous drawing. Two years later, he made his professional debut in the weekly magazine La Gaceta Sideral with the comic 'Ben Bollo'. He worked for the daily El Dia and its several supplements. It is in 1958, when Rivera created his first serious comic strip: 'Aventuras de un Inglés en el Uruguay' (republished in Black Flag magazine as 'Patricio York'). In 1959 he started a daily comic version of Acevedo Diaz's novel 'Ismael', at first with two scenarists, but later on his own. In 1966 he became a permanent illustrator of El Dia de los Niños until his retirement in 1990. Here, he drew the comics 'Paloma y Pequitas' and 'Pepe Nandú'.
