Very little is known about the pulp-artist Ben Abas. After World War II, he worked for his father's Bell Studios in Lunteren, in The Netherlands. Between 1947 and 1955, he created a very popular series of small illustrated books (called "beeldromans" in Dutch) including 'Lex Brand', 'Spot Morton', 'Tom Wells', 'Kara Ben Nemsi', 'Texas Ranger' and 'De Groene Straal'.
