Carlos Garzón was born in Bogotá, Columbia, in 1945. A self-taught artist, he has loved comics since childhood. In 1967, he created his own adventure comic strip, El Dago. His art samples eventually came to the attention of artist Al Williamson, who invited Garzón to work with him in New York. In 1970, Garzón became Williamson's assistant on the comic strip Secret Agent Corrigan, and soon found himself penciling and inking other "realistic style" comic strips, including Big Ben Bolt and Rip Kirby. As a team, Williamson concentrated on penciling and inking the figures while Garzón penciled and inked the detailed vehicles and backgrounds, a process that had them frequently passing pages back and forth between their drawing tables. Their collaborations include the comic book adaptations of The Empire Strikes Back, Blade Runner, and Return of the Jedi. A versatile cartoonist, Garzón also drew many Flash Gordon and Bugs Bunny stories for Gold Key comics. He lives in Florida.
