New fan art by Miguel Martinez & ROM covers in Espanol vs. the original English versions

A big thanks to Miguel (from Spain) for sharing this fine work of art which apparently was inspired after having discovered this blog. Aside from paying homage to Bill Mantlo and his toy inspired silver spaceknight the other purpose I had in mind with this blog was to inspire people out there to get back in touch with their inner artist and share it here.
Along with Miguel's fan art I thought it might be nice to feature and compare some of the Spanish versions of ROM cover art to the originals. There are some covers that are virtually identical to the originals. But I wanted to focus on some of the ones that had differences ranging from subtle to more noticeable and some cases where the cover art concept was based on the back story instead of the primary one.
