Bachan is a Mexican comic artist, born in 1971. He began his career at the publishing house Novedades, creating comic adaptations of novels for the magazines Joyas de la Literatura, Novelas Inmortales and Hombres y Héroes. Between 1989 and 1993, he was part of the collective Molotov, that published fanzines like Tripodología Felina, Hemofilia, Molotov and Zootropo. For these fanzines, he created comics and characters like 'El Bulbo' (scripted by Bef), 'La Fresa Asesina', 'Pablo y El Moco' and 'Citlali'. In 1994, he filled the comics section La Última y nos Vamos of the magazine Somos.

Bachan then left the comic scene and focused on a career in advertising. In 1999, he began a collaboration with the American DC Comics, drawing issues of the series 'Doom Patrol Silver Age' and 'Justice League'. After that, he focused on his own comic magazine El Bulbo (2000-2001) and on the comic 'Nirta Onirly' (written by Jean David Morvan), published by Humanoïdes Associées for the French maket in 2004. He also reassumed his advertising activities with the J. Walter Thompson agency. For the Mexican edition of MAD magazine, he makes the series 'Vinny, el Perro de la Balbuena'.
