About Javier de Isusi
Javier de Isusi (Bilbao, 1972)
An architect by training but a comic author by vocation and profession, Javier de Isusi debuted in 2004 with Los viajes de Juan Sin Tierra, a comic series spanning over 600 pages inspired by his travels in Latin America, which he completed in 2010.
The series was followed by other works such as Ometepe, He visto ballenas (nominated for awards at the most important festivals in Spain and France), Asylum and La divina comedia de Oscar Wilde, a graphic novel for which he was awarded the National Comic Award 2020.
A year later, his book Transparentes won the Euskadi Literature Award 2021 in the Illustration category. That same year he published El mar recordará nuestros nombres.
His work has been translated into Basque, French, Portuguese, German, Finnish, English and Polish.
