German reprint of Alex Toth's Zorro!

First cover for the reprints of Alex Toth's well regarded classic adventures of the 50's Zorro comics!  And... a sneak peak to the second cover!  These stories are considered visual storytelling masterpieces. Published in Germany by Thorsten Lehmann of Classic Heroes.  They will be in German and newly re-colored.  Each cover reflect the stories inside, starting in chronological order...  There are two stories in each issue.  Our German friends will enjoy the flyer above.  Thorsten will be at the Comic & Film Börse Convention in Austria at the end of this month where the first issue will be available for purchase!  
Here's the convention info:
Berufsschule
LÄNGENFELDGASSE 13-15,
1120 Wien, Austria 
Thanks Thorsten for asking and the oportunity.  It's a pleasure to be able to be part of this project...  these covers were done in memory of my late and dear great friend Alex Toth.

Ruben, here's the link to the publishers' website:

By the way, do you draw sketches for fans from time to time? I'd love to have one of your sketches, signed to my name, in my collection. I'm from Belgium. Am I correct when I say that you regularly provide artwork to Roy Thomas for his Alter Ego magazine? It's a great mag and I'm also a regular contributor.
If you want to contact me directly, here's my email address: dleonar1@kcc.com Best, DOM
