Biography

Carlos Giménez was born in Madrid. His father died soon after his birth and he spent his childhood in an orphanage. Aged 17, he showed his artwork to Manuel López Blanco and was employed as his assistant at Ibergraf.

After 1962, he shared a studio with Esteban Maroto and Adolfo Usero. His earliest solo work includes one page factual fillers, "Curiosidades" ("Curiosities"). Major early series for Selecciones Ilustradas include the western Gringo (with Manuel Medina, 1963), and science fiction series Delta 99 (with Flores Thies, 1967) and Dani Futuro (with Victor Mora, 1969). Carlos created Rambla with Adolfo Usero, Alfonso Font, Luis Garcia and Josep Maria Bea.

His stories became increasingly autobiographical and historical. Paracuellos (1975) explores life in orphanages and Los profesionales (1982) recounts life at the Selecciones Ilustradas studio. He received a career award from "Salon del comic de Barcelona" in 2005. In 2012, he completed "Pepe", a biography of his colleague José González.
