(1954 - October 4, 2009) is an award winning author and artist from Argentina, best known for his long career in comics.Garijo became known outside his homeland in the early 1980s through his work at D. C. Thomson before moving to European publications in the 1990s.
Since 1981, his work has gained an international audience in the Scottish war magazine, Commando. He is also co-publisher of his own comic magazine, Gurbos, which often deals with serious social themes.
In 2004, Garijo's first novel, El Fuego (The Fire) won the Honor's Prize from the Buenos Aires Writer's Society.
A year earlier, he painted the politically aware card series, Don't Let It Happen Here for Monsterwax. That series gained notoriety for profiling little known international atrocities, many of which went on to become well known news stories (like modern day slavery in Africa and honor killings in the Middle East). He has produced other trading cards for the same company including The Art of H. G. Wells, three series adapting three of Well's books: The Time Machine, The Island of Dr Moreau and The War of the Worlds.
Garijo continued to paint and one of his last works was another novel. It is said to be about his father's experiences as a prisoner in the Nazi concentration camp of Mauthausen.
He died on October 4, 2009 and is survived by his wife Adriana and their three children.
