Born March 26, 1948 in Pontevedra, Spain, Mr. Garcia-Lopez is an absolute living legend and even if you don’t know who he is, you know his work, as he may have created the definitive reference to at least some of your fave DC characters.
Happy Birthday Good Sir!
When I see his work, I think, “Yes, this is how these characters are supposed to look.”
May he have a happy birthday.
When I close my eyes and picture a lot of DC Comics characters, they look like a Garcia-Lopez drawing.
Happy Birthday to an absolutely wonderful artist in every way.
His contributions go beyond comics and style guides, and into the realm of toys as well, as he did the packaging artwork for Kenner’s Super Powers line:
Have a great one, sir!
Hood and cape Darkseid > Any other version
Being a Kenner loyalist, I would normally be inclined to agree, but this is my fav Darkseid:
Its by Mattel (and is rather swell), and is inspired by the Super Powers version, so I think it would meet with JLGL’s approval.
I am supposed to be smiling.
Happy Birthday José Luis Garcia-López!
There is some great art he did for the Batman ‘66 Merchandise over at The 13th Dimension.
Happy Birthday to an absolute legend in the industry!
I love his DC Artwork, just a joy to look at.
One thing I wish I could’ve seen, was to see how the Wonder Twins would’ve looked under his style.
