Jose Casanovas, Sr. (1934 to 2009), who was born José María Casanovas Magri, was a Spanish comic artist who worked in Britain for Fleetway, drawing episodes of Tharg's Future Shocks, Ro-Jaws' Robo-Tales, Judge Dredd, Tharg's Time Twisters, two one-off stories and three serials from Mark Millar's re-imagined Robo-Hunter in 2000 AD and Max Normal in the first four editions of the Judge Dredd Annual. To the revived 1980s version of the Eagle he contributed The Amstor Computer, Star Rider and a couple of one-off stories.

Casanovas also drew five issues of DC Thomson's SF digest title Starblazer and contributed (unfortunately anonymously) to various girls' titles throughout the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, including True Life, Love Story, Star Love, June, Tammy, Sandie, Jinty, Lindy, Emma, Penny and Mandy. In addition, he drew for both Starlord (notably the memorably horrific one-off story 'Good Morning, Sheldon, I Love You!') and Scream!. His son, also called Jose Casanovas and also a comics artist, collaborated with him on Robo-Hunter.

Casanovas worked extensively in various European publications until at least 2006. He died on 14th March 2009.
