Country of origin: Spain Europe Comics Publisher: Dargaud (France)
Born in Barcelona in 1971, at the age of 18 Raule won the comics competition in Bellvitge, the city he grew up in. He began drawing at the Joso school, but there he realized that drawing was not for him... He preferred writing. He collaborated with Roger Ibáñez, with whom he formed a winning duo as they worked together for Otaku, the manga magazine published by Norma. They then published Hole'n'Virgin, Amores muertos and Cabos sueltos at Amaníaco before releasing the Jazz Maynard series with Dargaud (Magnetic Press 2017 in English). Raule then wrote La conjetura de Poincaré (Diábolo Ediciones) with veteran Josep Mª Saurí. Since his drawing studies, he has never put his pen down, developing a unique writing style over the course of his albums, a result of dipping his quill into the ink of the Barcelona suburbs as well as the film reels of this genre. Most recently, he has worked with Gabor on the samurai adventure series Isabellae, published by Le Lombard (2019 Dark Horse in English), teamed with Juan Luis Landa on the historical fantasy series Arthus Trivium (Dargaud; Europe Comics in English), and returned to explore the streets of Barcelona in 2018 alongside Philippe Berthet with L'Art de mourir (Dargaud; The Art of Dying, Europe Comics).
