    Rafael Lopez Espi Hombre Enmascarado #36 (The Phantom) Hooded Menace Painted Cover Original Art (undated). During the seventies, Spanish comic cover master Rafael López Espí's collaboration with Vértice led him to create some very highly-sought after Phantom covers for the El Hombre Enmascarado series. After that, he drew Phantom covers for the Phantom series published by Bastei in Germany. Later, in the nineties, he worked for the agency Dalger Press and, among other projects, drew comics that were published in Sweden. The Ghost Who Walks and his trusty sidekick Devil spring into action against hooded menaces in this terrific painted cover for the Spanish version of the character. The artwork measures 10" x 14.5" and the art is in Very Good condition.
