Óscar Jiménez is a Spanish comic book artist, penciller and inker.


Jimenez started out in 1993 inking Carlos Pacheco's pencils at Marvel UK and rapidly became well known in the American comic industry for his art on titles such as The Flash, JLA and Contest of Champions II. He commenced work on Avataars: Covenant of the Shield but, according to editor Tom Brevoort, "Oscar Jimenez fell apart halfway through the project, requiring us to bring in other diverse hands to finsih [sic] it up."[1]

The artist has recently returned to mainstream USA comics work under the pseudonym Juan Barranco, filling in on Squadron Supreme. He is currently doing work on Avatar's Gravel series as well as Chronicles of Wormwood: The Last Battle, a mini-series being written by Garth Ennis.
