Esteban Maroto Torres (Madrid, 1942) is a Spanish cartoonist. He began his career around 1955 in the studio of Manuel López Blanco, sketching the series Aventuras del F.B.I. de Rollán, for four years. There he befriended Carlos Giménez, who drew the backgrounds.
Installed in their own studio, Maroto and Giménez produced together Buck John and The Prince of Rodas. He signed a contract with Selecciones Ilustradas and went to Barcelona. From there, he drew war and romantic comics for the English market, as well as collaborating with Giménez on Gringo. In 1967 he began the series Five for Infinity, which would be followed by The Tomb of the Gods and Wolff. These began to make him a great fame in the United States. In the 1970s, Maroto drew horror comics for Warren Publishing comics' Creepy, Eerie, and Vampirella. Maroto is also responsible for the design of Red Sonja's metal bikini. In 1972 his work Alma de Dragón began to be published in Trinca magazine.
The theorist Francesca Lladó, in her classification of cartoonists and scriptwriters of the so-called boom of adult comics in Spain, ascribes him to the La Floresta Group together with Carlos Giménez, Jesús Peña and Adolfo Usero.
