Don Gabriel Vargas: adiós al cronista por antonomasia


Para acabar, regreso a usted, Borola, y pienso en don
Gabriel y en su comedia humana…
nos aferramos a esta furris vidorria
tan poderosa, sí, que sigue y sigue a pesar de morirnos.

 Hugo Gutierrez Vega, Oda a Borola Tacuche de Burrón,
del libro Peregrinaciones. Poesía reunida (1965-1999).

(Mex)A pesar de que la muerte nos alcanzará algún día y borrará de la faz de la tierra nuestros huesos, quedarán en el recuerdo, en la historia, nuestras ideas.

A decir de la odisea que comenzó Don Gabriel Vargas-considerado el “Cronista Urbano de la capital mexicana del siglo XX- en el año de 1978, con sus primeras imágenes y dialógos sociológicos, plasmarían, por 60 años, a una sociedad contradictoria, de ricos y pobres, con sus laberínticos barrios y vecindades que, como cáncer, comenzaban a poblar la ciudad de México.

Hablamos de la historieta, que apareció por primera vez en 1938, con el nombre de Vida de perro, más adelante se transformó en El señor Burrón, y en 1940 apareció como La Familia Burrón, que fue publicada cada martes por la Editorial G y G, la cual llegó a los 1616 números el 25 de agosto de 2009 y, en la actualidad, la Editorial Porrúa sigue publicando compilaciones de ellas.

La Familia Burrón vivirá por siempre en la mente y en la vecindad ubicada en el “Callejón del Cuajo número chorrocientos chochenta y chocho”, donde se desarrollaba su microcosmos, que bien podía ser un pulcro espejo o una ácida crítica de ciertas virtudes y vicios de la familia tradicional mexicana.

Recordaremos entre sus 57 personajes al Borola Tacuche, Macuca, Don Regino, Don Briagoberto Memelas, Doña Gamucita, Boba Licona, Foforito,, Avelino Pilongano, el Conde Satán Carroña, el cuacua-pollo, entre otros nombres, aún vivos en el argot popular.

Cabe recordar que Vargas Tulancingo, Hidalgo 1915-2010) fue reconocido con en 1983 con el Premio Nacional de Periodismo; en 1993 con el Premio Nacional de Ciencias y Artes por el Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes; y el año pasado, recibió el doctorado honoris causa de la Universidad de Hidalgo, entre otros reconocimietos.

Por otro lado, también trabajó en Excélsior y el Universal Gráfico por muchos años; fue el creador de otras historietas como Los Superlocos, Los Chiflados, Sherlock Holmes, La Vida de Cristo, El Caballero Rojo, Poncho López, Los del Doce y Don Jilemón Metralla.

La muerte lo alcanzó este  martes 25  dentro de su casa, ubicada en la calle de Carlos Finlay 5 de la colonia Cuauhtémoc.

Su esposa, la periodista Guadalupe Appendini, declaró a un medio local que la muerte de Don Gabriel se debió a un “problema cardiovascular que le aquejaba desde hace años” y sería velado la capilla A de la funeraria Gayoso de Sullivan, en la Ciudad de México.

Descanse en paz Don Gabriel Vargas.
