Arturo Del Castillo ( 1925 - 1992 ) est considéré comme l’un des tous meilleurs dessinateurs de westerns et on lui doit de nombreux « héros solitaires parcourant l’ouest sauvage »
Magnifique dessinateur chilien dont le trait classique à base de hachures exprime bien toute la violence de ses personnages et a inspiré un grand nombre d’artistes. Il a d'ailleurs été récompensé par des prix en 1979 à la biennale internationale de Cordoba (Argentine) et à Lucca en 1980...
