Misty Presents… The Jordi Romero Badia Collection is out now!
This deluxe over-sized art-book celebrates the art of a lost master of horror illustration!
Collecting Jordi Badía Romero’s work from supernatural girls comic Misty for the first time, this sumptuous hardcover art book collects stories from the 1980s showcases this remarkable, and criminally-overlooked, artist who died in 1984.
Romero – also known as Jorge – started his career in the early 1950s, illustrating Spanish romance and adventure stories alongside his brother, Enrique Badía Romero (artist on Modesty Blaise and Axa). Within a decade he would find work with UK publisher Fleetway, where he made a huge contribution, flourishing in the 1970s on titles such as Pink and Misty. As Jorge B. Gálvez he went on to work on several short stories for the American horror-comic Creepy, before moving onto Tarzan in the 1980s.
One of the unsung masters of British horror comics, this book celebrates his timeless talent and showcases the impact his work had on the readers of Misty. This exquisite collection is a must have for fans of great comic book art!
