Buffalo Bill

Buffalo Bill

This series (an American production) tells the tale of the famous scout of the West (crowned with a Davy Crocket beret), coming down rather heavily on the side of irony and surrounding the protagonist with beautiful women. Despite the fine illustrations by Fred Meagher (interspersed with close-ups of the hero designed by Galleppini) and G. L. Bonelli's personal modifications of the scripts, the Italian public (used to upstanding real good-guy heroes) did not receive the character favorably, and the strip never achieved the popularity that had been hoped for.
