European Western Comic Books ~ Avventure del West

Avventure del West

Adventures of the West


This comic book series was made by Rocco Molinari presumably in 1965 to be inserted in surprise envelopes. It proposes various materials, partly taken from previous editions, always destined for the same circuit; stories originally published in Kid Colt (Italy, 1959), Jumbo Comics (De Leo, 1950), Albi ariete grandi adventure (Ariete, 1955) and Invincibili (Editrice Fumetti, 1956). Among the characters are Audax (King of the Royal Mounted) by Jim Gray, Kid Colt by Stan Lee, J. Keller, Doug Wildey and Al Williamson and Il falco dei mari (The Hawk) attributed to Willis Rensie, or Will Eisner (who had made the previous Hawks of the Seas, published in Italy as I predoni del mare on Urra!), but presumably scripted by Ruth Ann Roche and drawn by Robert Hayward Webb. Also designs by Leone Cimpellin and Onofrio Bramante. Announced, but not found, the #13 "Steve Porter, the Indian agent". Issue #1 was released in January 1965 and ended with #12 released in December 1965. Each issue contained 32 black & white pages with color covers under the direction of L. Rossi.
