Jose Luis Garcia - Lopez / Mora

José Luis Garcia-Lopez is simply one of the most iconic DC Comics artists of all time! He is well known for his work on Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Teen Titans, Flash, Jonah Hex, Batgirl, and pretty much every other DC Comics character from the 1970's to the present day.
Spanish Artist best known for his career at DC Comics during the 1970's, 80's and 90's. His artwork was often used for style guides and stock images in various DC Comics merchandise and still is to this day.
Luis Garcia Mozos was born in the small Spanish village of Puertollano in 1946. Remembering his early inspirations he has said the he “learned to draw by copying Emilio Freixas when I was 8 or 9 before moving to Barcelona.” But as the example here by the 7 year old Luis shows, he was clearly a child prodigy of enormous talent even before becoming besotted by comics.
Luis’ first professional work was drawn for the publishing house Bruguera under the directorship of Francisco Ortega, astonishingly he was only 14 years old but even at that age showed an assured draughtsmanship that belied his years.

Luis had established himself as one of the leading artists in the revival of Warren's horror titles, but after only a year he was ready to move on. It was a journey that began with a meeting with Salvador Dali ( hey- things like that happened in the '70s! )
In Paris Luis arranged to show his work to the editor of Pilote magazine

Pilote offered Luis complete artistic freedom and it was here that he finally established his own, fully realised artistic personality.

Taking us full circle, some of Luis’ latest works have been comic strips which marry his early interest in narrative with his later painting technique.
