CAFU (Carlos Alberto Fernandez Urbano) started drawings comic-books at a very young age, with a couple issues of Intimidators for Image Comics. He also did an album for Adonis / Dargaud in France, an adaptation of Quo Vadis.
His first work for DC Comics were some pages for Manhunter #30. After that, he moved to Marvel to do Marvel Adv. The Avengers #15, #18, Black Panther #34-#35, and X-Men: Die by the Sword #3-#4. He returned to DC to do the Vixen: Return of the Lion miniseries. And next he’d do the 11 chapters of the Captain Atom co-feature in Action Comics. After penciling War of the Supermen #3, and part of issue 4 and signing an exclusivity contract with the company,CAFU launched the critically acclaimed T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents series for DC Comics written by Nick Spencer.
After CAFU was named by DC Comics as one of the artists responsible for the New-52, it was decided that he’d be the artist on the new Grifter book written by Nathan Edmondson. After that, he moved to Blackhawks, and returned to T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents for a “farewell” to the book in the last issue of its second miniseries.
After drawing the Action Comics backups written by Sholly Fisch, CAFU has drawn World’s Finest #8 and #9, Teen Titans 23.1: Trigon (Villains Month); the Earth #2 Annual, a short Shadowman story, and, currently, the best-seling Unity book for VALIANT Entertainment.
