has announced a monthly title by Sergio Aragonés
The celebrated cartoonist and Groo the Wanderer
creator will write and illustrate Sergio Aragonés Funnies
, which was teased earlier in the year by Bongo's Bill Morrison, reports Robot 6
"Sergio Aragonés's Funnies
is a new ongoing series that not many people may know about, but it's coming from Bongo Comics this year and will most likely premiere at Comic-Con International San Diego," he told Comic Book Resources
"As the book's editor, I hope I'm not coming off as self-serving by mentioning it here, but I'd be talking about it anyway, just as a Sergio fan! This book will be completely written and drawn by Sergio and will be unrelated to The Simpsons
. He'll continue to write and draw Simpsons
stories as well, but this will just be Sergio doing what he does best; drawing the funniest cartoons in the universe."
Bongo is headed by Simpsons
creator Matt Groening, and is best known as the publisher of the tie-in comic to Fox's animated series.
Aragonés has contributed to the publisher's comics before, working on Bart Simpson
in 2009.> Read our latest Comics news
