    Jose Gonzales - Axel, page 2 Original Art (undated). Jose Gonzales, celebrated in America as the Vampirella artist, started his career in 1956 as a seventeen year-old, drawing Rosas Blancas and Brigette for Editorial Toray. Gonzales spent over a decade working on girls' romance features for the Fleetway publishing house, where honed his mastery at limning the female form. Gonzales' women are Mediterranean beauties; his men, suave continental lotharios. As a result, his work has an appealing exotic eroticism. This bordello scene is a quintessential example of Gonzales' unparalleled skill. The image area of the page is 14.5" x 20". The word balloon type is pasted-on lettering, and the balloon in the final panel has slipped off the page; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition.
