Carlos Pacheco started his career at the Spanish branch of Marvel Comics, where he illustrated various covers and posters. Shortly after that, he got to work for Dark Guard, published by Marvel UK for which he collaborated with writer Dan Abnett and Inker Oscar Jimenez. His work attracted a lot of attention in the United States, after which he was offered the opportunity to work on Marvel Comics’ Bishop in 1994. In the same year he was given the opportunity to draw DC Comics’ The Flash. 

Pacheco’s work for Uncanny X-Men, Starjammers and Excalibur made him a well-known name among Marvel Comics fans and garnered him an international following. Perhaps his most famous and popular work was epic story Avengers Forever. He has drawn many Marvel characters and storylines since then, including Ultimate Thor, Avengers and XMen. Pacheco’s most recent work is the mini-series: The Life of Captain Marvel. Carlos also created his own comic, Arrowsmith, in collaboration with partner-in-crime Kurt Busiek. The two of them are currently working on a sequel to the series to be published by Image Comics.
