Fantomas, the elegant menace

Published in Mexico between 1966 and 1985, and taking off where the 60s movie version couldn’t even dream about going, Fantomas is a great comic that might have been unnoticed to English speakers at large. Luckily, there will always be people who won’t let go and keep the flame alive.

So, really, how crazy can a Mexican Fantomas comic get?

That’s pretty fucking crazy, if you ask me.

For more Fantomas (and really isn’t this the perfect excuse to practice the world’s second language right now?) go to the wonderful Fantomas, la amenaza elegante. They are doing a great job of archiving the whole series.
