Francisco Solano López

Francisco Solano López hailed from Argentina, but created many memorable and popular British comic book strips such as Kelly’s Eye (Knockout), Janus Stark (Smash!), Nipper (Score ‘n’ Roar), Pete’s Pocket Army (Buster) and Master of the Marsh (Smash!). He contributed art to Adam Eterno (Thunder) and many Picture Library stories for Fleetway (including a Battler Britton story for Thriller Picture Library). In Argentina he was known for Ernie Pike (with Hugo Pratt and José Muñoz), and most famously The Eternaut (written by Héctor Germán Oesterheld). He died in 2011.
