About the Author

Alberto Breccia (b. 1919; Montevideo, Uruguay; d. 1993, Buenos Aires, Argentina) is an influential, internationally acclaimed comics artist and cartoonist. His career began in the 1940s, during the golden age of Argentine comics. From 1962-1964, he drew Mort Cinder, written by Héctor Germán Oesterheld, which is considered a masterpiece of the form. He took a break from comics to teach and co-found the interdisciplinary art school IDA (Instituto de directores de Arte) but returned in 1968 to draw graphic biographies of Che Guevara and Eva Perón, and a reboot of Oesterheld's seminal 1959 graphic novel, The Eternaut. Throughout the 1970s and early 1980s -- when Argentina suffered under a series of military dictatorships -- and beyond, Breccia drew serialized comics for the European market, working with and adapting writers such as Poe, Lovecraft, Borges, Trillo, Sasturain, and many others. In 2021, he was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame.
Héctor Germán Oesterheld (HGO) (born July 23, 1919; disappeared by the military and presumed dead 1977), was a pioneering Argentine graphic novel and comics writer. Notable works include his science-fiction series El Eternauta, as well as Life of Che, a biography of Che Guevara.

Great news for fans of the astonishingly brilliant South American comic artist Alberto Breccia.
Mort Cinder is a pioneer of the macabre. ... Breccia's ready to match any genre [writer] Oesterheld throws at him -- suspense, historical adventure, horror, even science fiction -- with a sincere and unpretentious mastery.
