This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Luis Bermejo (born 1931 in Madrid, full name Luis Bermejo Rojo, frequently credited as Bermejo), is a Spanish illustrator and comics artist known for his work published in Spain, Italy, Great Britain, and the United States.  He has illustrated a number of novels, and worked for a while with DC Comics.

Bermejo initially learned the trade as the assistant of Manuel Gago, before he began his comic book artist career in Britain in the late 1950s when through the agency A.L.I., he worked in the titles Girls Crystal and Tarzan Weekly.  He worked on Thriller Picture, John Steel, War, Battle Picture Libraries, and Pike Mason in the early 1960s.  In 1962 he started drawing the war-themed comic strip Mann of Battle for The Eagle, and would draw the strip Heros the Spartan for that title in 1963.  Later in the 1960s he would draw the super hero Johnny Future.

For much of the 1960s, Bermejo worked out of a studio in Valencia, Spain for the agency Bardon Arts with other artists including Jose Ortiz, Miguel Quesada, and Emilio Frego. These artists including Bermejo started working with Italian agent Pierro D'Ami in 1968, where they would do many paintings for books and magazines.  During this period Bermejo would do a number of comic strips for the magazines Tell Me Why, Once Upon a Time, Look and Learn and Tiny Tots.

In 1974 Bermejo, along with fellow Valencia Studio artists José Ortiz and Leopoldo Sanchez joined the agency Selecciones Illustrada and soon started working for Warren Publishing in U.S.A.  Bermejo quickly became one of the most prolific artists for Warren, and would draw a total of 78 stories from 1974 through 1983, more than any other artist except for José Ortiz and Esteban Maroto.  Highlights of Bermejo's period with Warren included a full issue of Creepy (issue 71) dedicated to him, as well as the role of the primary artist for The Rook, which was Warren's most well known recurring character after Vampirella.  Bermejo would also draw the serial The Fox in Vampirella in 1981 - 1982.  He would win the award for Best All Around Artist at Warren in 1981.

Bermejo would write and draw an adaption of El Señor de los Anillos (The Lord of the Rings) in Spain in 1980. After Warren's collapse, he would draw for Skorpio and Lancio in Italy, as well as Relatos Nuevo Mundo, Metropol and Zona 84 in Spain.  He also created comics adaptations from the works of Isaac Asimov and Raymond Chandler.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Luis Bermejo Royo was born in Madrid in 1931. He began his career as Manuel Gago's assistant and then he got his own series 'El Rey del Mar', which he did following this artist's style.  He also worked as artist on 'Aventuras del FBI' (Rollán, 1951), the 'Apache' series (Maga, 1956) and 'Marco Polo' (Maga, 1962).

At the end of the 1950s the Spanish market for comics came to a crisis so Luis Bermejo started working for the international agencies Bardon Art, Selecciones Ilustradas and Luis Ferraz's The Illustrated. He did a large number of works for Britain, mainly war stories and contributions to the Thriller Picture Library. Then he took over the character 'Heros the Spartan' from his creator Frank Bellamy. Although Bermejo's production for the Spanish market rated low during this period, it didn't cease. In addition he entered the Italian market by means of the Italian agency d'Ami.

Luis Bermejo was present in US magazines from Warren publishers like Eerie and Vampirella with several horror comics in the 1970s.  He also worked for DC comics. In 1980 Bermejo wrote and illustrated an adaptation of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.

Some of the adult magazines that spawned in Spain from late 1970s published works drawn by Bermejo: the westerns 'Mestizo' and 'Jon Khe', the series 'Orka' (1982), 'Paco Rusque' (1983) and some short stories that appeared in Cimoc, Metropol and Zona 84.  In 1987 Bermejo illustrated El Capitán Trueno. He also did adaptations from books by Isaac Asimov and Raymond Chandler. In addition to his comics, Luis Bermejo has got an important career as an illustrator.
