Javier Pulido is a Spanish comic book artist working primarily for the American market. His notable works include Human Target, Robin: Year One, She-Hulk and The Amazing Spider-Man.

Early life[edit]

Born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Javier Pulido was a fan of comics from early childhood. He moved to Barcelona to study at the University of Fine Arts.[1] Pulido was part of the second big wave of Spanish authors who introduced themselves on the American market in the 1990s, together with Germán García and Kano (following the example of the "first wave" formed by Carlos Pacheco, Salvador Larroca and Pasqual Ferry some years earlier). Pulido's style is heavily influenced by David Mazzucchelli and Steve Rude.[2]

Career[edit]

While studying at the University of Fine Arts, Pulido started getting his first professional assignments, doing covers and illustrations for Marvel Spain.[1] In 1996, he released Mentat, a four-issue miniseries which became his first and final work directly for the Spanish market. Less than a year later, he was contacted by Marvel Comics and since then has been working exclusively for Marvel, DC and its Vertigo imprint.
