Carme Barbará Geniés is one of the few female comic artists from Spain who has had her own long-running serial. Although she has illustrated many girls' comics, such as 'Florita' (Ed. Plaza), 'Azucena' (Ed. Toray), 'Sissi', 'Blanca' (both Bruguera), 'Claro de Luna' and 'Marilyn' (for Ibero Mundial), she is best known for 'Mary Noticias', that appeared in 484 books and several extras published by Ibero Mundial during the 1960s. She later worked mainly for foreign market comics, and eventually in illustration.
