Suicide is funny. In fact, everything is funny. Thank you Sergio Argones and, in turn, Mad Magazine, for teaching me this golden rule at the tender age of 10.
Argones can come up with a gag or 10 on any subject imaginable. I should know. I saw him do a presentation in Athens, GA, a few years back and he drew gag cartoons on the audience’s dumb suggestions of topics. It was the most incredible feat of cartooning prowess I’ve ever witnessed.
Hear that? That’s right. You don’t. Sergio doesn’t use words. This man, nay, GOD doesn’t need words. He can make you guffaw with the power of funny drawings. Funny drawings and tons of suicide gags, that is.
