Fanfulla by Pratt

The storyof the soldier of fortune Fanfulla da Lodi were published for the first time in episodes on the pages of Corriere dei Piccoli between 1967 and 1968. The adventures of Fanfulla were born at the same time as “Una ballata del mare salato”, which since 1967 has been published in the Sgt. Kirk magazine, but it is with Fanfulla that Pratt decides to break the mold, both graphic and editorial. In fact, squeezed into the rigid graphic cages imposed on him by the director Carlo Triberti, the master of Malamocco bursts into the narrative with enlarged and asymmetrical vignette, often increasing the loads of blacks so as to reinforce and reinvigorate the dynamism of the story, it was precisely this desire for graphic and intellectual freedom to sanction the end of his collaboration with the Milanese weekly.

Altai & Jonson by Cavazzano

Born in 1975 from the fervent genius of Tiziano Sclavi and the masterful brush of Giorgio Cavazzano, Altai & Jonson are the parody of the various Starsky and Hutch of the American crime films and TV series that depopulated in the 70s, soon becoming a cult title. « I remember that Altai & Jonson was, for me and for Giorgio, the first important comic. Without Altai & Jonson, without Cavazzano, Dylan Dog would probably never have been born. » (Tiziano Sclavi)
