Album Cineromanzi Missionaries
Missionary Adventures in Overseas Countries

A total of 37 issues were produced, divided into two series with non progressive numbering: Series I #1 (1947) - #26 (1951) Series II #1 (1952) - #11 (1960)

The series of magazines, were also called HEROES AND CONQUERORS, which alternated the vertical format (v) with the horizontal format (o) of sixteen self-covered pages in the first series (except the numbers 12 and 13, 16 pages + cover) and with cover in the second series. They present adventure stories already published in the ITALIA MISSIONARIA magazine. In some cases, the adventures are first published in the register and then in the magazine. Often the authors use pseudonyms or contractions of their name, so Armino stands for Armando Talpone, author, among other things, of most of the comic books and stories that complete the books, while the novelist Gaetano Bernardi is hidden under the alias Rusticus . The designer Franco Donatelli also signs himself Frank or Frank Donat, while the designer Alberto Mauri signs himself Malbert. Also texts by Gastone Toschi and Jolanda Gianoli and drawings by Giuseppe Cappadomia. In appendix Maggi comic stories. The covers are made by Armino, Renzo Maggi and Cecilio Manfredotti.
