Art Baltazar

Art Baltazar started making comic books with his self-published comic book, The Cray-Baby Adventures. Since then he has created such other comics as Gyro-Man, Captain Camel & the Space Chicken, Jimmy Dydo, Lunar Lizard, Meteor Mite, and Patrick the Wolf Boy.

Baltazar briefly worked with Warner Bros. and had a monthly comic strip in Disney Adventures Magazine titled “Gorilla Gorilla!”. Baltazar has completed a graphic novel titled The Big Amoeba for Platinum Studios.

Baltazar was the artist and co-writer with Franco Aureliani of Tiny Titans, for which the two won a 2011 Eisner Award for Best Publication for Kids. The Baltazar and Aureliani team co-wrote DC’s Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam! and the comic book adaptation of the animated TV series Young Justice. In 2011, Capstone Publishers began publishing a series of DC Super-Pets books illustrated by Baltazar. In 2012, Baltazar founded a comic book shop in Skokie, Illinois with his partner and co-owner Franco Aureliani. That same year, DC launched a new series titled Superman Family Adventures which was written and drawn by Baltazar and Aureliani. Fuzzy, the Krypto Mouse, a character who appeared in a single story in Superboy #65 (June 1958), inspired a similar character created by Baltazar for Superman Family Adventures. In 2013, Baltazar and Aureliani launched a revival of The Green Team for DC. That series was cancelled in January 2014.
