Nazario Luque Vera is considered the father of the Spanish underground comic. For ten years, he was a professor at the EGB. In 1971, he set up a collective in Barcelona with different artists and published underground comics ('El Rollo Enmascarado', 'Paupérrimus', 'Catalina', 'Purita', etc.), which led to problems with the censors and the Francoist police. He subsequently published in magazines like Star, Rock Comic, El Víbora, Bazaar, Makoki, It, Actuel, Oz, Frigidaire, Gai Pied, and L'Echo des Savanes. He has done posters and record covers (including being pirated by RCA for a Lou Reed cover). He has devoted himself to painting, his work being fantastically well-received by critics and public alike.
