Born in Oñate, Guipúzcoa, Luis Durán alternated studies in the 1990s and eventually graduated in Fine Arts. He has contributed comics to alternative publications like TMEO and Makoki, and local papers like Diario Vasco, El Correo Español and Diario de Burgos. By the late 1990s, he focused on illustrations. Later on, he returned to comics, self-publishing his work under the Mancuso Comcis label. From 2001, he has published his official comic books with the publishing houses Sinsentido ('Vanidad'), Ediciones De Ponent ('La Tierra Negra') and Astiberri ('Astravesado por la Flecha', 'Antoine de las Tormentas').
