El Encubierto de Valencia
José Aguilar is a painter, illustrator and graphic designer born in Valencia in 1966. He has illustrated children's books and books on such subjects as history, horror and science fiction. In 1984, while still in his teens, he contributed a few short stories to comic magazines 1984 and Metropol. Then he contributed another one to Cimoc. Much later José Aguilar tackled a longer story which he wrote and drew, 'El Encubierto de Valencia', which was published in 2007. This was based on a 1851 novel written by Vicente Boix about the war of the Germanías which took place in Valencia during the sixteenth century.
