Sir Alex Ferguson’s incredible journey to becoming football’s greatest manager would not have seemed out of place in the pages of a comic book.
Long before becoming a Knight of the Kingdom, Fergie led Aberdeen FC to unimaginable success at home and abroad after arriving in Pittodria in 1978.
He moved to Old Trafford in 1986 with the task of bringing Manchester United back to its former glory and in fact took the club to new heights over a historic 26-year span which brought in 38 trophies to be added to the nine trophies. majors he won with Aberdeen.
To mark Sir Alex’s 80th birthday, we’ve decided to celebrate this true comic book hero by creating our very own Fergie comic book in his honor.
Fergie described himself as Govan’s poet laureate during his time in Pittodria and our skit looks back at the time he fined Aberdeen’s 80s heroes in verse!
Football history in monthly pictures Artist Carlos Pina wrote our screenplay in the pocket-sized comic book style that brought the beautiful black and white game to life.
As Fergie says in the final scene: “Poetry in motion! “
Happy Birthday Sir Alex and all the best for 2022.
