Il Sergente York

Il Sergente York

This well-received series created by Roy d'Amy presents the adventures of an unlikely yet extremely lifelike Foreign Legion of the West, a special corps that has the task of keeping guard over the Frontier, in a Far West of the second half of the nineteenth century. As well as the likeable and very skillful York, who gives his name to the series, the characters at Fort Hope (the Legion's Base) come from all over the world: the Irishman Sean O'Donnel, the American Flinty, the Canadian Roseberry, the Pole Toplinsky, the Neapolitan Antonio Caruso, the Austrian violinist Oscar Strauss, the Cossack Vassili Ivan Petrovich Karakazoff Smolensky, the French captain Jean Leroux, the Scotsman Jolly Jock, the orphan Pretty Boy, the courageous Parnell and, finally, Colonel Hoover. But this motley array of figures gets an opportunity to show its operational efficiency in an interminable series of adventures of all types, all highly exciting and very well rendered by the author's artwork.
