Today in Comics History, June 5: Happy birthday, Federico García Lorca!

There's no actual appearances that I can find of today's cumpleañero, the Spanish playwright, poet, artist and director Federico García Lorca, born on this day in 1898! Oh, huh, Federico, you wrote Lament for the Death of a Bullfighter, Gypsy Ballads, Sonnets of Dark Love, The Butterfly's Evil Spell Buster Keaton Goes for a Stroll and lots more, but you never found the time to pop into a Detective Comics or Sub-Mariner, huh? that's okay: Sergio Aragonés has got ya covered!

from "It's Always Hard at the Beginning! or My First Three Nights in N.Y." in Solo #11 (DC, August 2006); script, pencils, and inks by Sergio Aragonés; letters by Stan Sakai

Happy birthday, Federico del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús García Lorca! Whew, that'sa lotta names.
