from Creepy, by Ramon Torrents

Ramón Torrents was born in Barcelona in 1937. He attended several art schools of this city since he was fourteen. After that he began working as a designer of decorations for glass objects. However, he was interested in more creative works so he tried to enter the field of comics. Unfortunately, this was a period in which a great number of Spanish artists either had to emigrate or had to work for international agencies. That's why Torrents joined the agency Selecciones Ilustradas in 1956. His first work, which was inked by Florenci Clavé, was published in France. After that Torrents was one of the numerous Spanish artists who contributed their works to Boyfriend, Mirabelle, Jackie, Love Story Library and other British magazines. These works were mainly romantic stories for teenagers.
