Angelo Torres (born April 14, 1932, in SanturcePuerto Rico)[1] is an American cartoonist and caricaturist whose work has appeared in many comic books, as well as a long-running regular slot in Mad.

Torres was friends with artist Al Williamson in the early 1950s and occasionally assisted him on work for EC Comics with fellow artists Frank Frazetta and Roy Krenkel (known as the Fleagle Gang). The story which was to be Torres' first solo EC story, "An Eye for an Eye" in Incredible Science Fiction #33 (Jan.-Feb. 1956), was rejected by the Comics Code and did not see print for the first time until 1971.

When the E.C. comics line failed after the enforcement of the Comics Code, Torres (and several other E.C. alumni) went to Atlas Comics (later to be known as the Marvel Comics Group) and drew a number of short stories for their mystery titles in 1956-57, titles such as Astonishing, Spellbound, Uncanny Tales, Marvel Tales and many others.
