Big Davy

Big Davy

A short-lived but interesting series that presented the adventures of Davy Crockett, one of the legendary figures of American history, constantly accompanied by his faithful carbine "Betsy". The script was by G. L. Bonelli, with artwork by Renzo Calegari, the latter being still somewhat of a neophyte in this field but already very adept at rendering the atmosphere and feel of that epic world. One curiosity: the series bore the title "Big Davy" because, at that time, there was already another series on the market that featured the complete name of the legendary Crockett.
