Man (Manolo Carot) was born just outside of Barcelona in 1976. His first illustration work was with role-playing games, such as Aquelarre, and for the magazine "Lider," of which he was the artistic director. Man published his first comics pages with the publisher La Cúpula, in the erotica magazine "Kiss Comic." Over the course of six years, he went on to publish a number of other stories, including "Universitarias" and "Huesos y tornillos," later published in the U.S., Germany, and the Netherlands. Also with La Cúpula, alongside writer Hernan Migoya, he published "El hombre con miedo" and "Kung fu Kiyo," and with Glénat Spain he put out two volumes of "Ari, la salvadora del Universo." Man's work has also extended to the Spanish edition of "Playboy," as well as numerous story boards, press cartoons, and magazine covers. He also teaches occasional courses on comics. With Dargaud, Man published the five-part series "En sautant dans le vide" in 2008 and 2009, as well as "Mia" (2008), which tackles the topic of bulimia with just the right touch. And in 2013, together with scriptwriter Zidrou, he published the crime fiction graphic novel "Le Client" (Dargaud; "The Client," Europe Comics 2018).
