Behind the scenes

  • The image is a flipped and recolored version of the front cover of Adventure Comics 428, by DC comics. It is the origin issue of the character Black Orchid; this character was a master of disguise and imitation, hence the link.
  • ¡La Fantoma! translates as The Phantom!, which lends verisimilitude to the idea that the magazine would give the reader ideas about how to sneak more effectively.
    • The exclamation mark style points to the idea that this would be a Spanish phrase. La Fantoma, although sounding Hispanic, under closer inspection the phrase actually only translates to the desired phrase The Phantom! (as an outcome of direct translation) from Romanian - this makes the first exclamation mark redundant. In Spanish, it would actually be ¡La Fantasma!.
