Romero > Comic Strip Art > Romero
Enrique Badia Romero (born in Barcelona 1930) simply signs his work "Romero". A Spanish comic strip artist, best known to English-speaking audiences for his work on Modesty Blaise. He is also the creator of the post-apocalyptic science fiction strip Axa.

Romero began his association with writer Peter O'Donnell's Modesty Blaise strip in 1970 when he was called in to finish the storyline "The War-Lords of Phoenix" because artist Jim Holdaway had suddenly died. Initially, Romero intentionally imitated Holdaway's style in order to make the changeover less noticeable, but soon established his own take on the character of Modesty Blaise, portraying her in a more exotic and voluptuous style than Holdaway did.

Romero drew the Modesty Blaise strip until 1978, but returned to the job in 1986 and remained with the strip until O'Donnell retired in 2001.

In 2002, Romero was commissioned to draw a graphic novel adaptation of the Modesty Blaise short story "The Dark Angels"; this work was initially published exclusively in Scandinavia but was later reprinted in a special issue of Comics Revue in the United States. honestly prefers Holdaway's Modesty Blaise strips for Romero's. But we certainly do appreciate his ability to draw and paint sexy women, often with little or no clothes on. We've got a small, but excellent collection of his pin up work, as well as some of his best Modesty strips!
