He began a fruitful and experimental collaboration with scriptwriter Felipe H. Cava, with whom he made two short stories about early 1930s Berlin for the magazines Complot and Madriz before embarking on their impressive comic 'Berlin 1931' in 1991. Raúl's artwork for this comic, about the rise of fascism in Germany, was inspired by painters like Liebermann, Kirchner, Heckel and Grosz.
