Abulí was born in Palau-del-Vidre, in France.

Having tried in a number of professions in various locations in the world, Abulí began his career as a translator and writer of comics in Spain in the early 1980s. With the influential publisher Josep Toutain, Abulí collaborated with the veteran artist Alex Toth to conceive Torpedo 1936. The relationship was short-lived, as Toth withdrew from the project due to creative differences in 1981.[1] He was replaced by the artist Jordi Bernet which started a very productive working relationship and resulted in a long series. Torpedo achieved popular international success, an Angoulême International Comics Festival award, and eventually a dedicated comics magazine of its own named Luca Torelli es Torpedo in 1991.[2]

Later collaborations with Bernet include De vuelta a casa, La naturaleza de la bestia: Ab Irato and Snake: por un punado de dolares. He has also published work with artists such as Marcelo Perez, Oswal, Christian Rossi, Darko Perovic and Riff Reb's.
