Carlos Trillo (May 1, 1943 – May 8, 2011)[1] was an Argentine comic book writer, best known for writing the Cybersix comics.


Born in Buenos Aires, Trillo began a prolific career as writer at the age of 20, penning his first story for Patoruzú magazine.[2] Trillo, together with Horacio Altuna, created the strip El Loco Chávez, which appeared every day at the back of the newspaper Clarín from July 26, 1975 to November 10, 1987. After that, the strip was replaced by El Negro Blanco, which he wrote for the artist Ernesto García Seijas until September 1993.

He participated in the creation of several comics including Cybersix in 1992, with Carlos Meglia, and the erotic Clara de noche and Cicca Dum Dum series with Jordi Bernet. He has also collaborated with Alberto Breccia and Alejandro Dolina.

In 1999, his work La grande arnaque (The Big Hoax) won the Prize for Scenario at the Angoulême International Comics Festival.

Trillo died in London on May 8, 2011, while on holiday with his wife.[1]

He married writer Ema Wolf; they had two children.
