Who is José Delbo?

In this way, the artist defines himself:
“I am an artist of Argentine origin who published my first work when I was 16 years old. I was inspired by cowboy westerns, moved to America and worked on classics like Billy the Kid, Judge Colt, and the Lone Ranger. Then in the ’70s, I brought a lot of TV shows into comic book form with titles like The Twilight Zone, The Brady Bunch, Hogan’s Heroes, Buck Rogers, The Monkees, and Mod Squad. “
The artist points out that His inspiration to portray death comes from his youth in the United States, where he consumed western culture, comics, television shows, which he captured in his early work in the 80s in DC and Marvel when drawing the characters Superman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, The Transformers and The Thundercats.
