MEET BENITO GALLEGO
Benito Gallego (born in Madrid, Spain) decided he loved comics at a tender age, even before he had already learned to read, and he’s been drawing all his life. It seems he can't stop doing it, filling any blank space with his doodles on every piece of paper that falls into his hands. 

For a long time he collaborated in Spain providing comics and pin-ups for fanzines and publications, while wasting his precious time for five years painting beautiful nude models in the Faculty of Fine Arts. And he continued drawing comics later while developing a parallel career in advertising and graphic design that paid the bills for many years.

He began taking totally seriously his career in comics after meeting comic-book living legend Neal Adams in a convention in Madrid who looked at Benito's samples and couldn't but repeat "Why are you not working for Marvel?". The words were still echoing inside Benito's head when he contacted another living legend: Roy Thomas who helped him getting his first professional assignments working with him in his series Anthem and Captain Thunder and Blue Bolt

Since then, he's been working with other top talents in the comics medium like Cary Bates and Sal Buscema at DC Comics, Brian Azzarello or Paul Kupperberg. Benito has done a variety of illustration work including trading cards with the Marvel characters, and monsters or dinosaurs for Upper Deck. And he has also done illustrations for books like the Diego’s Dragon series written by Kevin Gerard.

Since 2010 Benito has been doing the art for Apama The Undiscovered Animal, a comic series based in concepts and characters from the movie Hero Tomorrow created by Milo Miller and Ted Sikora. He has provided the art and lettering for a graphic novel on the life of reggae star Bob Marley written by Jim McCarthy. 

In 2016 Benito started working in The New Adventures of Tarzan series with writer Roy Thomas and he is currently collaborating with famed writers like Nicola Cuti, Don Glut and others in The Creeps horror magazine.

Benito lives in Alicante, in the East coast of Spain, with his wife Soraya and daughter Alona who are the most ferocious but also grateful critics of his work.
