Considered one of the most important comics artists in Spain, Blasco was born in Barcelona in 1919. His first illustrations were published in 1935 in the Spanish edition of Mickey. In the same year, he created ‘Cuto’, his most popular comic. After the end of the Spanish Civil War, he continued the series in the boys’ magazine Chicos, where he worked on a number of adventure and science fiction comics, while actively collaborating with other publications. His oeuvre ranges from comics featuring cartoon-like animals to realistic works. Blasco made his international debut in the early 1960s, when he joined the British publishing house Fleetway, for which he produced a number of comics, including ‘Steel Claw’, ‘Billy the Kid’, and ‘Buffalo Bill’.
