crimson_faces_by_noahwhylerHumberto Ramos (born 27 November 1970) is a Mexican comic book penciller, best known for his work on American comic books such as ImpulseThe Spectacular Spider-ManThe Amazing Spider-Man and his creator-owned series Crimson.

Humberto Ramos began his career in 1993 at Milestone Media. He was later hired by DC Comics as the regular penciller for their Flash spin-off Impulse, which launched in March 1995. Written by Mark Waid, the superhero/teen comedy series focused on young speedster Bart Allen, the grandson of the first Flash, Barry Allen, and his struggles with growing up in an alienated Alabama suburb.Impulse by Humberto Ramos

In 1998, Ramos co-founded the imprint Cliffhanger with comic book artists Joe Madureira and J. Scott Campbell. They created the imprint, housed by Jim Lee‘s Image Comics division Wildstorm, to publish their creator-owned comic books outside the mainstream superhero genre. Both Campbell and Madureira had already built large fanbases with their previous work on Gen¹³ and Uncanny X-Men respectively, and were two of the most popular comic book artists at the time. Ramos, on the other hand, was not as popular and his inclusion on the imprint was perceived as second choice, after fan-favorite Michael Turner declined because he was still under contract at Top Cow.




Ramos’ first Cliffhanger title Crimson ran for 24 issues and two one-shots. It was followed by the fantasy/mystery series Out There, months later. Ramos also began illustrating the covers of Peter Parker: Spider-Man with issue #30 and—beginning with May 2002’s Peter Parker: Spider-Man #44—additionally did the interior artwork on the four-issue story arc “A Death in the Family”, written by Paul Jenkins.

Seemingly without effort Ramos became the most prominent of his Cliffhanger peers going on to pencil numerous Avengers, Spider-man and X-Men titles as well as many independent books and is known to create some of the most outstanding variant covers in the business.  Humberto Ramos stood out from the crowd in that he delivered consistent high quality work on a regular schedule and continues to do so to this day.
