Who is Armando Salas?

Armando Salas, born January 30, 1946 in Ortigueira, is a Galician cartoonist.

Armando Salas is one of the first cartoonists to bring eroticism to Spanish publications in the form of semi-nude girls, tempered with irony and sarcasm during the dictatorship of General Francisco Franco. During this era in 1967, he began drawing professionally for the news-magazine "Diez Minutos", and for "Comics Camp" and "Comics In", a fanzine dedicated to the study of comics where he created "Saturday", an ironic take on "Sunday", a popular comics character created by Víctor de la Fuente. Around 1970, he contributed editorial cartoons to the daily "Pueblo", and he also joined the staff of the daily El Correo Gallego and the magazine "Doblon". That same year he started contributing on the TV journal "Todo Television", and he also created a syndicated panel series, "Don Teleneco", in which he satirized "couch potatoes". He began working for the daily El Diario de Ferrol in 1972, and a year later he contributed cartoons to Heraldo Español, in the province of Aragon.

He created his most well-known series, "El Eden", for the Spanish comics magazine El Globo.
