Christmas Cards 2011

As I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, I'd like to share  some of the greeting cards, I received from around the world.
The first is from Gammelredax Ulf Granberg and The Phantom Crew in Stockholm, Sweden.

Also from Sweden, arrived a card sent by Magnus Eriksson of The Scandinavian Chapter.

Next, a cheerful picture from the great Argentinian artist Cesar Spadari.

And from my hometown of Taranto, Italy comes this card sent by artist Gian Marco De Francisco.

Goodbye, Eduardo!

Comic artist Luis Eduardo Barreto  passed away, today, at the age of 57. Barreto, from Uruguay, worked on titles including Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, The New Teen Titans, and  Atari Force. (One of my favorites!) His last work, DC Retroactive The 70′s: Superman,  was published earlier this year.  In July 31, 2011, Eduardo became the artist for the Sunday The Phantom comic strip. R.I. P. Eduardo!
(Also today, the great  Joe Simon, creator of Captain America, the Sandman, the Fly and many, many more has passed away at the age of 98)

Happy Holidays!

To all our Phantom Phriends, all the best for the Holidays... and beyond!
--Sal Velluto and Eugenio Mattozzi

Back to the Future 2

Following the success of my previous two covers, paying homage to the very first issues of Fantomen and Fantomen Annual, I was asked to draw a third homage cover. This one reprises the cover of Fantomen # 4/1950 which was originally drawn (like the other two) by Swedish artist George Camitz.
Perhaps, I should also re-interpret  the remaining two covers drawn by Camitz ( Fantomen 2 and 3/ 1950) What do you think?

My answer to... TIME

Here's  the latest cover of TIME magazine (December 12, 2011 | Vol. 178 No. 23), featuring an article by Joe Klein entitled "Where is the Love?" And here is my rebuttal, in cartoon form!
