Albert Monteys

(Barcelona, Spain, 1971)

Became well-known for his drawing skills with the comic Mondo lirondo (Prize for the Best Fanzine at the Saló del Còmic de Barcelona, 1994), produced by the collective La Penya which he formed together with Àlex Fito, José Miguel Álvarez and Ismael Ferrer.

He soon joined the editorial team of the satirical weekly magazine El jueves, where today he is in charge of the current affairs pages and fixed series such as Tato and ¡Para tí que eres joven!, the latter with Manel Fontdevila. He has published cartoon strips and stories in the children's magazine Tretzevents. Among the prizes he has won, a highlight was that of the Saló del Còmic de Barcelona in 1997 as best newcomer author for the comic-book Calavera lunar, a personal work that delves deep into his private humoristic universe.
