Jesús Blasco
Birth: Nov. 30, 1919
Death: Oct. 21, 1995

Illustrator. He was born in Barcelona, Catalunya. He is considered to be one of the masters of Spanish comics, making his debut in 1935, when his first illustrations were published in the Spanish version of the magazine "Mickey." For "Boliche" magazine, he created "Cuto" one of his best-known characters. In the beginning of the 1950s, Blasco started an international career with the British publisher Fleetway, for which he started off by drawing "Buffalo Bill" for "Comet" (1954) and "Billy the Kid" for "Sun." Later, he went on to draw other strips for "Sun," notably "Robin Hood" and "Dick Turpin." He drew many strips for "Lion," the best-known - and probably the most celebrated of all his strips in this country - being "The Steel Claw"(known in Spain as Zarpa de Acero). Also, he worked on "Tex Willer" and "Capitan Trueno" with writer Victor Mora. His brothers also were comic artists. His full name was Jesús Blasco Monterde. He died in his hometown of Barcelona.  (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
