The Jaime Diaz studio may not do S-coded stories anymore. But
they're still at work. The Argentinian names that turned up all over
the Disney Comics comics of 1990-1992 were in fact stories done by
the Jaime Diaz studio, even if they were not billed as such. (How
else to explain a 24-page story inked by six people?) The Diazers
still contribute to Marvel's Disney comics, although Scott -- or is it
Hector? I mean the artist of the two -- Saavedra works for Egmont too
(on Mickey stories like the recent "Up the Amazon"). But more
notably, the Jaime Diaz folks draw the majority of the new Warner
Bros. comic book stories. IMHO, they do MUCH better WB characters
than Disney characters.
A related WB question: anyone know a 1940s BB issue in which
BB and Porky are stuck in a lost kingdom whose ruler is named Omi
Akinback? My dad remembers that one.
