Montse Batalla

Illustrator and screenplay writer

Initially a student of Philology, art-lover and fan of the Romanesque, Montse Batalla forms a creative team with her life partner, Xevi Domínguez, at the illustration studio they currently share in Calldetenes (Barcelona). Always fond of drawing and attracted by the expressive possibilities of the comic strip since she discovered her father’s comic collection, Manicomio (Ediciones La Cúpula, 2019) is her first major work as scriptwriter, a brave example of autobiographical literature in which she relates the circumstances of her admission into a mental institution.
