More About Horacio Altuna
Self-taught artist Horacio Altuna made his debut in Argentinia in 1965. He co-created several characters, such as Bif Norman (with writer Robin Wood), Hilario Corvalan (with Sergio Almendre), and Kabul (with Hector German Oesterheld). In 1975, with the Argentinean writer Carlos Trillo, he created the series 'El Loco Chavez', which became a huge success. It was adapted for TV and published in Spain and France. Altuna became secretary of the Argentinean Comic Association and taught graphics at the School of Arts in Buenos Aires. In 1982, he moved to Spain. Already a master of black and white techniques, he devoted himself to stories in color, like 'Ficcionario', 'Tragaperas', 'Merdichensky' and 'Charlie Moon', which were published all over Europe. In 1986, he received the 'Yellow Kid Award for the Best Illustrator' from the International Comics Salon in Lucca. A talented realistic comic artist, Altuna has made many innovations in traditional comic layout.
