El Kid

El Kid

Represented as taking place in a border region of northern Mexico, the album has as its protagonist a rather reckless young man who sets himself up as a defender of the poor and the oppressed. Through a lengthy series of adventures in which he comes up against Mexican rurales, Apache warriors and pistoleros, our hero uses his guns and his fists without every losing the ironic and lighthearted look on his face. This decidedly dynamic character, springing from the inexhaustible imagination of G. L. Bonelli, had his first adventures, with artwork by the already expert hand of Dino Battaglia, on the pages of Collana Rodeo, and later in TuttoWest. Subsequently, the series was also illustrated by Renzo Calegari and Gino D'Antonio, for a total of twenty-four albums.
