Italian Crisis

Jacovitti Saterday.

As I said last week, after Popjac had run it's course, Jacovitti turned it's hero Giuseppe into the subject of a daily strip. I believe this ran for about a year, although I have no idea where. I would love to see a collection of it, but even though much of Jacovitti's work has been reprinted, this hasn't. Some of these strips were used in the Dutch comic magazine Pep, which I read as a teen.

Ger -These are beautiful! Never seen any on this side of the ocean, but it's love at first sight. I had to jump into your archives and read the rest before commenting. Jacovitti seems to have soaked up Virgil Partch, Don Martin, undergrounders like Jay Kinney. Thanks!

In his earliest work you can see Popey's Segar was a huge influence as well.
