Born in Spain, Vicente Alcazar began his career in the 1960s. He collaborated with fellow artist Carlos Pino under the dual pseudonym Carvic, drawing war stories for the magazine Chï¿½o (1967) and for UK publications and companies, including War Picture Library. The team additionally drew stories based on the U.S. television series Star Trek for issues #74-105 of Polystyle Publications' 1969-1971 weekly British magazine TV21.
At the recommendation of artist Gray Morrow, then editing then Archie Comics' imprint Red Circle Comics, American publishers began using Alcazar's work in the mid-1970s. Alcazar's first credited U.S. work appears in four publications cover-dated December 1973: penciling and inking the six-page stories "Suicide ...Maybe" and "A Thousand Pounds of Clay" in the Archie/Red Cirlce comic book Chilling Adventures in Sorcery #4; penciling the two-page story "The Old School" in Warren Publishing's black-and-white horror-comics magazine Creepy #58; and inking penciler Rich Buckler's cover of Marvel Comics' black-and-white horror-comics magazine Vault of Evil #8.
Alcazar quickly became a regular freelancer for Archie, Marvel, Warren, and soon DC and Charlton Comics, primarily drawing horror stories but also sword-and-sorcery (drawing the cover and inking penciler Val Mayerik's "Thongor! Warrior of Lost Lemuria" feature in Marvel's Creatures on the Loose #27, Jan. 1974); war (DC's Star-Spangled War Stories #178 (Feb. 1974); and science fiction (the Larry Niven short story adaptation "...Not Long Before The End" in Marvel's black-and-white comics magazine Unknown Worlds of Science Fiction #3, May 1975; and stories in Charlton's similar Space: 1999 #6-8, Aug.-Oct. 1976).
After inking penciler Ernie Chan on DC's Jonah Hex #8 (Jan. 1978), he became that Western series' regular penciler and inker beginning with #12 (May 1978), working with writer Michael Fleisher. He continued through #22 (March 1979) and additionally drew #27 (Aug. 1979).
Alcazar's comics work tapered off in the early 1980s. He wrote and drew the eight-page story "Paradise" in the comics-anthology magazine Heavy Metal vol. 5, #4 (July 1981), and penciled the Marvel superhero comic Moon Knight #21 (July 1982), his last known comics work until 1993, when he penciled an issue each of Continuity Comics' Megalith #2 (June 1993) and Earth 4 #3 (Aug. 1993).
Currently, he is working on a comic book called M3 with American writer Erica Schultz.
