Juan García Iranzo started his comics career when he was twenty years old. During the 1940s, his humorous and realistic comics, such as 'Dick Norton' (1944) and 'Captain Anger' (1946), were published all over Spain. His great success came when he created the Pepe family - father Pepe, mother Pepa and son Pepito - in 1947, for the magazine Pulgarcito. Two years later, Iranzo came up with the series 'Kit Ray', and in 1951 his most famous character, 'El Cachorro' was born.

'El Cachorro' ran for nine years. When the publisher wanted Iranzo to increase his production, the artist put an end to the series by letting his hero marry his heroine and settle down. Iranzo then continued on with the adventures of 'Bravo Miguel'.
