The ebay listing for this comic book, which sold for $35, reads Gordo Comics #1 (interior indicia says "Gordo Comics #1"; top left front cover says "Comics Revue #5") from 1948.
In our ODDBALL GORDO items, you'll find the advertisement Gus Arriiola sent out for his "Chili con Carne Colorado" recipe. This item is listed on ebay at https://www.ebay.com/itm/132519771400?ul_noapp=true and the owner, Shirley, tells me she has five of them.
GORDO FOR SALE
This is not intended to be a marketplace for GORDO items, although I would be happy to maintain such a "swap meet" on this website. This purpose of this page is simple: to give an idea as to the intrinsic value of items relating to GORDO and GUS ARRIOLA that are available on the marketplace. Many of the items listed elsewhere in this website are available from Amazon, ebay and other providers and will not be listed here. The items listed here are not listed elsewhere on this site. I encourage you to search ebay for Arriola and Gordo for lots of interesting items regarding our favorite comic strip and its creator.

PASTE-UPS - If you would like some large sized work and can't afford the originals, paste-ups are a nice alternative. While not currently offering these online, their store is Cannery Row Antiques in Monterey, Calif. I have had very good experiences dealing with them. If there is a particular Sunday strip you would like, I have many duplcates and would be happy to share.
