Long before the American comics arrived to Spain, there was a Golden time where very valuable vignettes were created. Also, long before it was known the meaning of the word “comic”, the stories that allowed Spanish kids in the post-war era to evade the hard reality were called “tebeos”. These tebeos have been our inspiration for the design of the new interiors of the Ibis Styles Madrid City Las Ventas hotel.
Maybe because of necessity, or because there was a synergy between draftsmen, all these “tebeos” were born in the fifties. Also, these years were very effervescent at an esthetic level and built a trampoline that catapulted the sixties as the innovation decade.
