Za La Mort

Za La Mort

This series (based on scripts by G. L. Bonelli and artwork by Pietro Gamba) borrowed its title, rather incongruously, from a series of silent films of the post-war era, the protagonist of which was a Parisian "Apache", a sort of Fantômas, as performed by the actor Emilio Guinone. In contrast, the protagonist of our series is a real Apache, of the Broncos tribe. Extremely deft at handling his Colt, he is flanked by Tom Jeffords, an army scout. The amazing adventures of this well-matched pair take place in the late nineteenth century, in the tumultuous years that marked the end of the Indian wars, during which Za La Mort stands out as a strenuous defender of his race.
