Flip, by Armando Salas

Armando Salas Martinez was born in Galicia, Spain in 1946. He studied drawing as well as banking, and got himself a job at a bank which allowed him to create comics and cartoons in his spare time. Salas has made comics in several genres, from erotic comics to newspaper strips. In 1967 he started his professional comics career with magazine Diez Minutos and fanzine Comics Camp, Comics In. For the latter he created 'Saturday', a parody on 'Sunday' by Victor de la Fuente. His ironic style soon landed him a job in the staff of newspaper El Correo Gallego, at the same time contributing to Pueblo, Doblon and Todo Television (where he made 'Don Teleneco'). In 1972, he started working for newspaper Ferrol Diario.
