About José Delbo
José Delbo is an Argentinian born artist. He published his first work at the age of only 16 in Argentina. He moved to the United States in the 60’s and, inspired by the American cowboy westerns, began work on classics like Billy the Kid, Judge Colt and the Lone Ranger. Then in the 70’s, he brought a host of television shows to comic book form with titles such as The Twilight Zone, The Brady Bunch, Hogan’s Heroes, Buck Rogers, The Monkees and the Mod Squad.
During the 80’s, long before the modern superhero dominated the big screen, he worked for the likes of DC and Marvel Comics and penciled the published adventures of Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, The Transformers and The Thundercats. In the 90’s, when the focus fell on the environment, he drew the first issues of Captain Planet and the Planeteers and Brute Force. He also worked with cartoon classics like Disney’s 101 Dalmatians, the Little Mermaid, the Mighty Ducks, the Yellow Submarine comic book for the Beatles, and the NFL superhero, Superpro, who ran around with Spiderman fighting crime in the big city. Some of his works also include published illustrated comic books featuring some of our cultures’ most iconic women such as Raggedy Ann, Little Lulu, Barbie and Wonder Woman.
In July of 2020, his career took a turn when he released his first piece of digital art on the blockchain in the form of a 43 page original digital comic book called “Death … No Escape.” Over the past year Delbo has continued to release original comic fine art as NFTs collaborating with some of the most well known artists in the space and establishing himself as a pioneer in the comic industry as it adopts NFTs as a new medium of expression.
