La Familia BurronThe Associated Press is reporting that Gabriel Vargas, the creator of “La Familia Burrón,” one of Mexico’s best-loved comic strips, died Tuesday.

The AP is reporting:

The National Council of the Arts and Culture said Vargas died at his home in central Mexico City. It said his health had been failing in recent years, but did not give a cause of death.

La Familia Burron was “one of the greatest representatives of the golden age of Mexican comics” and an “undeniable reference point for the nation’s popular culture,” the council said in a statement.
