As a child, Rubén loved two things: drawing and fighting with wooden swords. Fortunately, he chose to work on paper. He took his first drawing lessons in the small village where he lived with his parents before joining the School of Design at Joso Barcelona. During this period he illustrated short stories for various Spanish magazines, one of which was noticed by Jean David Morvan. Morvan contacted Rubén which led to their collaboration on "Jolly Ringworm" and "The Three Musketeers."
Jean David Morvan's work was seen previously in CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED DELUXE #4 "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer." A writer and editor for Editions Delcourt, Morvan is known for his faithful adaptations of classic novels and attention to literary detail.
