Étrange Évasion (Marius)

Jorge Domenech studied fine arts in Barcelona, and made his debut in comics and animation at age seventeen. His early work appeared in magazines like Historietas, Mundo Infantile and Florita. In 1957 he moved to Paris, where he started a cooperation with Bonne Presse, signing his work with Jordom. His comics were published in magazines like Rallye Jeunesse (1959-60), Bayard (1961), Bernadette (1962-69), Pistolin and Pilote. For Vaillant he worked with René Goscinny on the series 'Boniface et Anatole'. In 1959 and 1960 he drew the comic strip 'Valentin' in alternation with Raymond Maric for Pépito.

In the late 1950s and 1960s he worked for the Mondial Presse agency and created vertical and horizontal strips like 'La Comtesse de Rudolstadt' (456 panels in Paris-Jour). He also worked for Opera Mundi and Le Pélerin, where he took over the series 'Le Père Boileau'. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s his work appeared in Amis-Coop, Marius and at the publisher Chancerel ('La Moto'). From 1978 to 1983 he illustrated 'Goldorak' in Télé Junior. Afterwards, he devoted himself completely to cartoon animation until his retirement in 1991.
