Just and unjust. Two opposing worlds, two mutually nourishing realities: the eternal confrontation between policemen and shards, judges and convicts, good and bad or, as Mingote prefers to call them: just and unjust.
First Edition, 2006. Collection A. Mingote number 4.
Binding in hardcover illustrated, format 21.7 x 30 cm. 90 pages. 162 black and white cartoons of the jokes that Mingote was publishing throughout his career in the ABC newspaper.
In this collection of anthologies of jokes, the reader can see how Mingote’s drawing has evolved from his first jokes, published in the fifties, to the most recent ones (date of the 2006 edition). It is more than half a century analyzing, from the pages of the newspaper ABC the Spanish and international news through a pencil and a paper. The jokes of Mingote rescued from the past provoke the same smiles that today, which shows that talent does not expire, that wit is not exhausted and that innocent gaze and common sense are powerful weapons to strip The actuality of unnecessary adornments and circumstantial unreason.
Examples are the jokes that portray the Spanish society of the 1980s but are still in force today: the shard that tells his victim “very careful what he does or I denounce him to the police,” as he prepares to defend himself against the robbery ; Or when the ill-fated victim being aided says “and above all that the judge does not know that I have slapped the robber”; Or when without words, draws Justice over a turtle.
Surely you will enjoy and smile many times with every joke of the great Mingote.
