Raul Trevino

Raul Trevino is a comic book writer and illustrator based in north Mexico. Working in comics for more than 15 years, his previous clients include Marvel, DC Comics, Dark Horse, Glénat, and Les Humanoïdes Associés.

Known for his action-packed adventures, in 2003 he was awarded first place in the International Norma Editorial Competition for the Best Short Story. The exposure helped him publish his first creator-owned graphic novel called The Dance of the Conquest. A thrilling adventure trilogy based in a pre-Hispanic Mexico. It was released in 2004 and was nominated for a New Talent Fnac Comic Book Award and Best New Author at the 9th annual Expocomic event in Spain.

At the end of 2009, Trevino began to write and draw the post-apocalyptic webcomic Tinkers of the Wasteland. It has been described as a cross between “Mad Max and The Goonies.” It is frantic fun that is sure to please comic fans and petrolheads alike. In 2013, he released an English version of the collected paperback edition. It is the first of three volumes, leaving English-speaking fan eagerly waiting for the second. In 2014, Tinkers of the Wasteland won two Butze-Vargas awards for Best Writer and Best Graphic Novel.
