Miguelanxo Prado is a Spanish comic book creator, born in A Coruńa in 1958. Prado studied architecture, wrote novels and painted before his career in comics.
He published his first work in the fanzine Xofre. In the 1980s, he worked for magazines like Creepy ('Mar de Tinieblas'), Comix Internacional ('Fragmentos de la Enciclopedia Delfica'), Zona 84 ('Stratos'), El Jueves, Cairo and Cimoc.
Book collections of his work were published in Spain by Norma Editorial, and by Casterman and Les Humanoides Associés in France. For Les Humanoides, he made such books as 'Chienne de Vie' (1988), 'C'est du Sport' (1989) and 'Y'a Plus de Justice' (1991). He also produced erotic stories, which appeared in L'Echo des Savannes.
His best-known comic book is Trazo de Tiza or Trait de craie (Streak of Chalk, 1992). This is a dream-like, experimental "impossible" story about a man on an island, unable to distinguish dream from reality, or present from past. For this album, Prado won several awards, among others the Alph'Art for the Best Foreign Album at the Angoulęme International Comics Festival, receiving this award for the second time; the first time was in 1991 for Manuel Montano. In April 2007 he was awarded the Grand Prize at the Salón del Cómic of Barcelona.
Prado's animated feature film, De Profundis was released in 2007.
