Image for Masked/Mystery Men Comics And Books

At times the comic book realm appears to be overrun with masked heroes and heroines. So rather than talk about characters, whom you may well be familiar with, we'll look at some that you may not know about.

Rodolfo Guzman Huerta was a Mexican wrestler, but whilst that statement is true he was a whole lot more. Known as El Santo (the Saint), he is one of the greatest Mexican sporting heroes. He also appeared in films and comic books. Always wearing a silver mask and fighting for the rights of the common man, he became the stuff of folklore.

Amok, an Italian comic book series, was created by Cesare Solini and Antonio Canale. The hero, an Indonesian giant, dons a mask dedicating his life to crime-fighting after his girlfriend is kidnapped. It has been translated into many languages, including the Spanish example here. Other Spanish masked men are El Defensor de La Cruz (The Defender of the Cross) set during the Roman Empire and El Capitan Coraje (Captain Courage).

We finish this journey on the other side of the globe with a couple of Australian titles. The Grey Domino, aka Hugh Standish, a racing car driver by day, crime-fighter by night, and the jungle adventurer Char Chapman, the Phantom of the East.

We have 90 titles and 1,399 issues in our 'Masked/Mystery Men Category' for you to enjoy.
