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.
Born Adolfo González Chaves in 1945) Juan Sasturain lives in Buenos Aires. His many professions include university professor, TV host, editor, journalist, and writer. He is a recipient of the prestigious Konex award, one of Argentina's highest honors.
