Ex-El Jueves Spanish Cartoonists To Publish Orgullo y Satisfacción On Wednesday


Here's the new website in progress. Translating as "Pride and Satisfaction. Artists without a magazine greet the new king. Hopefully on Wednesday 18th June."

The title refers to the usual sentence the King says in this annual speech for Christmas, broadcast every year on Christmas Eve, "me llena de orgullo y satisfacción".


A new digitak publication from 18 ex-El Jueves cartoonists, who walked out of the Spanish satirical magazine as the owners of the publishers objected to a cover ridiculing the corruption in the Spanish monarchy during a time of abdication.

The new comic will be published on Wednesday, a day before the coronation. A 75 page comic for one-and-a-half Euros, directed by William Albert Monteys, Manel Fontdevila, Manuel Bernardo Vergara and Bartual, with articles and cartoons by Agreda, Albert Monteys, Asier and Javier Bernardo Vergara, William, Isaac Rosa, Iu Forn, Lalo Kubala, Luis Bustos, Malagon, Manel Fontdevila, Manuel Bartual, Mel, Paco Alcázar, Paco Sordo, Pepe Colubi and Triz.

The Caramba Comics blog carrying much of this information has, however, crashed. Royal technical intervention perhaps?
