[By François Willot:]
César Ferioli is one of the best Spanish Disney Comics artist. He first worked for Disney France through the Comicup Studio around 1985, short after the first Comicup stories appeared in France. Ferioli was very influenced by Maximino Tortajada, but then developed his own style after a few stories. He was also influenced by Miquel Pujol.
He did many Mickey, Goofy, Sport Goofy
and James Ding stories for Le journal de Mickey in
the 80s (I don't think he did any Duck stories for France), and also
submitted a few
to GP in the Netherlands and Mondadori in Italy.
The stories he did for GP
don't show the best of the
artist. On the contrary, his
French stories are most of the time
excellent and improved greatly along the years.
One of the best stories he ever did were part of the famous James Ding series published in the late 80s, but his other Mickey stories (with the Phantom Blot and many other characters) are almost as good the James Ding ones. Ferioli also did some Ellsworth back cover gags (the first ones produced by Disney-France) and Super Goof gags during the Olympic Games.
Since the late 80s, César Ferioli has been working for Egmont in Denmark exclusively. His style changed
again and became more
realistic (and a bit less
maybe!). He also drew (with Maria
Manrique as inker)
Fantasy Island with a script written by
Byron Erickson, which I consider to be one of the best
Mickey stories ever.
