Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Raúl Roux was a pioneer of Argentinean comics. Roux started his career in 1922, drawing cartoons in Páginas de Columba. In 1928, he was the first artist for El Tony, Argentina's first magazine entirely dedicated to comics. For this magazine, Roux drew the adventures of the cat 'Rulito, el Gato Atorrante', as well as the first realistic Argentine comic, an adaptation of Grimm's 'Hansel y Gretel'.
He also drew the series 'Hombres que han Conquistado Fama' in El Gráfico for six years. He was present in La Razón with 'Más Allá', an educational comic about scientific advances. For Patoruzito, he drew 'Fiero a Fierro' and in Mundo Argentino his comics 'Cuentos de Fogón' and 'Lanza Seca' appeared. For this last comic, that appeared in 1949, Roux did extensive research about the military campaigns against the Pampa's aborigines.
