Luis Lorenzo Sosa was born in Guanabacoa, near Havana. He studied with the local art school since the age of 13, but had his first job with a towel factory. Largely a self-taught artist, he joined the art team of Mella magazine under the guidance of Virgilio Martínez in 1960. In the following year, he was present in the first issue of Pionero magazine. He drew the magazine's first cover, and remained a contributor for thirty years until moving over to Zunzun in 1990. His best known creations are 'Kombey, El Samurai' in ¡Aventuras! and the science-fiction series 'Matias Perez' in Pionero. He also worked with Juan Padrón on 'Ronin', another samurai feature, and with Marcelino Ortiz on 'Capitán Fabricio' and 'Zombo'.
