Writing as: Alfonso Font

According to "Font was born in Barcelona. He began his comics career in the 1960s as apprentice in the local Editorial Brugnera studio, working mostly at western, war, mystery and horror series, especially for foreign publishers. In the 1970s he worked for the British publisher Fleetway to several comics, in particular war series such as Black Max; later he would also work for American publishers Warren Publishing and Skywald. During the latter decade, he shortly moved to Paris, where he collaborated with the magazine Pif gadget for which, among the others, he created the science fiction series Les Robinsons de la terre. In 1972 he illustrated the series "Geminis", written by Carlos Echevarría, dealing with espionage adventures set in World War I.

Between the 1970s and the 1980s Font realized his most famous series: Historias negras ("Dark Stories"), a collection of eighteen short, dark humorous adventures, and the science fictional Cuentos de un futuro imperfecto ("Tales of an Imperfect Future"). This was followed in 1982 by the similar, though more hilarious El prisionero de las estrellas ("The Prisoner of the Stars"), an ecological-themed series, and Clarke y Kubrick, Espacialistas Ltd ("Clarke & Kubrick: Spatialists Inc."). Though the two main protagonists' names are those of the creators of 2001: A Space Odyssey, author Arthur C. Clarke and film director Stanley Kubrick, this series' is mostly inspired by Robert Sheckley's short stories. In 1982 he also released an erotic-comic series entitled Carmen Bond."
