European Western Comic Books – Albogiornale (ALBI JUVENTUS (4) SUPPLEMENT JUVENTUs)




The word Supplements Juventus is attributed to these comic books for ease of cataloging, it is not printed on the books themselves, which are usually identified by collectors. They do not carry numbering and initially come out without indications, then they are mainly a supplement to the Albogiornale.

Series I: Here we wanted to insert three issues that were published in 1938, the first two by the Vittoria Publishing House and printed by the Off. Grafiche La Lito and the third by Arti Grafiche Zacchetti & C. for Edizioni S.A.D.E.L. Among other things, the first two comic books were still advertised on Albi JUVENTUS in the summer of 1940. "The Invincible" and "The Hero of Texas" publish Ted Strong by Al Carreno, already appeared as Matteo Garrese on Topolino (1937 and 1940) and "The Arizona Musketeers" still features English-made material.

Series II: The debut takes place with three collections of the inserts of the first 8 issues of Albogiornale and along the same lines the "reprint" of "Paolone the Smuggler" is inserted. Then there are stories already published in the weekly itself or in Audace I #19 #20 present Captain Fiamma (Gordon Fife) by Bob Moore and Carl Pfeufer, #29 and #30 propose “Courageous Hearts” (Albi Juventus #107/135 and #31 and #32 close the series with the “Life of Lightning” fictionalized by Vincenzo Baggioli.
