Joan Escandell (Ibiza, 1937) is one of the most outstanding comic book authors of the 20th century in Spain. He worked for the mythical publishing house Bruguera (contributing to Captain Thunder among others), an iconic brand in the Spanish-speaking publishing world, where he was a prolific comic book illustrator. The prevailing image many Spanish speaking teenagers have from figures like Ivanhoe or Robinson Crusoe originates from his unforgettable drawings for the series Literary Jewels for Young Readers (Joyas Literarias Juveniles). Joan Escandell is also well-known in other European countries as the illustrator of the first eco-friendly series Antares in France (1975-1990) and his version of He-Man in Germany. He also contributed to Disney productions like 'Cinderella', 'The Lion King', 'Hercules' or 'Pocahontas'.
