Alvaro

Who was Alvaro? He produced some superb covers for Commando in the 1960s. He produced only 15 covers in total, 13 in 1963-65 and two additional covers in 1967. I'm guessing he was Spanish, so I'm hoping that one of our Spanish readers will be able to supply some info on this very fine artist.
