Carlos Cruz González, usually known simply as Carlos Cruz (1 June 1930 – 27 April 2018[citation needed]), was a Spanish comics artist.

In the 1950s, he worked in Buenos Aires as a cover illustrator and cartoonist, before moving to Málaga in the 1960s, where he began working for British firm Fleetway Publications on their British comics. His work appeared in Eagle, Tiger, Buster, Smash! and others. His most significant work in British comics was his three-year stint on the series Dan Dare in the relaunched Eagle from 1985 to 1988.[1] Between 1988 and 2003, he worked on The Phantom in Sweden.
