My Bio
I'm a comic artist, living in Jerez, Spain, currently working for DC Comics.
I'm working on new DC Universe relaunch series JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, with super star writer PETER MILLIGAN, which is way cool!
Other published work for DC includes "FLASHPOINT: DEADMAN & THE FLYING GRAYSONS #1" written by J.T. Krul and colored by Ulises Arreola ,with cover by Cliff Chiang and seven pages for "JLA 80 PAGE GIANT" written by Adam Glass, with many other featured artists.
My published work for other companies includes "The year we were Champions of the World", written by Pepe Caldelas, published by Panini Comics and the Adidas soccer comic book "The ultimate search: Higuaín". Other of my works are a short story in Heavy Metal Magazine, "The Rose in Winter", and the graphic novel "Les aventures d'Antonin Phylifandre" for Éditions Akileos. My illustrations based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s works have been exhibited throughout Europe.

I'm not accepting collaboration work for the moment, due to my schedule with DC. Thanks a lot for considering me for your project.

If you are interested in comissions, just send me a note and I'll try to give it a frame. Thanks!

Trinity War!

I've been lucky being part of the Trinity War event. The three Justice Leagues crossover, involving up to 30 DC characters, featuring stars like Superman, the Batman or Wonder Woman, and being part of a creative team with guys like Geoff Johns, Jeff Lemire, Ivan Reis, Doug Mahnke or Joe Prado. So now you can see some of the pages I did for Trinity War chapter 3, Justice League Dark #22. Soon I will post some pages of Justice League Dark #23 (Trinity War chapter 5) plenty of action! Hope you enjoy them! M.

Long time since last time I uploaded my work, so time to fix that. I've uploaded 10 pages from the last two published books. I'm still working at DC's Justice League Dark.
