Born in Mexico City, Alfonso Tirado attended the Academy of San Carlos. Upon graduation in 1922, he began working as an illustrator. He specialized in realistic adventure comics, that he published in Mexican comic magazines. His first story was 'Aguila Blanca', published in Pim Pom. His story 'El Hombre Invisible' was published in Pepín, and in Paquín. For the latter, he also produced serials like 'Mr. Mc. Ana en el Africa' and 'El Misterio de la Casa Roja'. Later series include 'El Vampiro Tenebroso', 'Nick Carter', and contributions to 'Mini-historias'. He retired from comics in the 1970's and spent the rest of his life as an art painter.
