Rio Kid

Rio Kid

Rio Kid, better known as "Il Cavaliere del Texas", was the protagonist of a brief series arising from the joint work between G. L. Bonelli, the script-writer, and Roy d'Amy, creator of the Plot and the artwork. A typical "righter of wrongs", accompanied by the cyclopic Whisky Bill (whose nickname is extremely illuminating of his love for alcoholic beverages), Rio Kid has his adventures in the arid regions of Texas and Mexico, where the action-packed stories (as was traditional for G. L. Bonelli's characters) frequently transcend the boundaries of the purely Western genre and encompass themes from the realm of the fantastic.
