This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Nestor Redondo (1928-1995)

Born April 5, 1928 in Candon, Ilocos Sur, The Philippines, Redondo was a painter, illustrator and comic book artist for DC Comics, Marvel Comics and other American publishers in the 1970s and early 1980s.

He began his career drawing Filipino komiks serials, which were written by his brother Virgilio, including Mars Ravelo's Darna series.  In 1969 and 1970 Redondo did a four-page serial Mga Kasaysayang Buhat sa Bibliya (Tales from the Bible) in each issue of Superyor Komiks Magasin, which was produced by his own company, Nestor Redondo Publications.

His earliest U.S. credit is penciling and inking the seven-page story The King Is Dead, by writer Jack Oleck, in DC Comics' House of Mystery #194 (Sept. 1971).  Through the 1970s, Redondo drew dozens of such supernatural anthology stories for DC.  He went on to draw all seven issues of Rima the Jungle Girl (May 1974 - May 1975), based on the heroine of a Victorian novel, as well as Swamp Thing #11-23 (Aug. 1974 - July 1976), issues of Tarzan and Lois Lane, and DC's tabloid-sized one-shot collection of Bible stories, cover-titled The Bible but officially titled Limited Collectors' Edition #C-36 (July 1975).

Redondo also drew for editor Vincent Fago's 1973 Pendulum Press Illustrated Classics, including Dracula and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde adaptations reprinted by Marvel Comics three years later as Marvel Classics Comics.  Directly for Marvel, he drew many stories of Conan the Barbarian in the black-and-white comics magazine The Savage Sword of Conan.

By 1978, Redondo had settled in California and worked as an animation designer for Marvel Studios in Los Angeles.

Redondo has contributed to various Christian comics.  He was also a panelist for the first Christian comics panel discussion of Comic-Con International, in 1992.
