BiographyEdit

Lucas first came to prominence in Argentina with his work on El Cazador de Aventuras, popularly known just as El Cazador, Cazador or just by its jokingly affectionate character nickname, "El Cazi". El Cazador was the highest-selling adult comic book in Argentina for several years. The series starred a character similar to DC Comics' Lobo, and featured artwork heavily influenced by Simon Bisley's style. On that title Lucas worked with Ariel Olivetti, Mauro Cascioli and Claudio Ramírez.[1]

In the United States he is best known for his work for Marvel Comics on titles such as Inhumans, Mystique, Iron Man, The Avengers, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk and Wolverine (Lucas' favorite character).[2] He painted the art of The Darkness: Shadows and Flame, written by Rob Levin (for Top Cow Comics).[3] Lucas also wrote the script for an upcoming independent movie based on his creation El Cazador, to be released sometime in 2019.[4]
