Inspector Dan, by Eugenio Giner

In 1939, shortly after the Spanish civil war ended, the young Eugenio Giner started doing several jobs for the Bruguera publishing house in Barcelona. Slowly, he became familiar with art and he decided to become an artist himself. After some first illustrations, Giner started his 'El Inspector Dan' series with Silver Kane in Pulgarcito weekly magazine in 1947. Giner soon expanded his activities for Bruguera and illustrated several comics in all sorts of genres. In late 1957, he cooperated on the launch of Tio Vivo magazine.

Two years later, he settled in London, where he did some art for Amalgamated Press. He returned to Spain in 1961, and joined the Selecciones Illustradas, through which he mainly worked for the magazine Sissi. Later in the 1960s he left the comics field for a long time to work in real estate construction. However, a serious illness left him partially paralized in 1974. Unable to do construction work anymore, he returned to comics. With Antonio Segura as scriptwriter, Giner revived the 'Inspector Dan' series for Totem magazine in 1982. Eugenio Giner published his last work in Comicguia, a specialist magazine from Valence.
