Capitan Tuono

Capitan Tuono

A short tale that appeared as an appendix to "Un ragazzo nel Far West", written with the usual masterly verve by G. L. Bonelli and illustrated with precision and elegance by Angelo Platania, an illustrator who was very well known in the Forties. The main protagonist of this tale is the likeable Capitan Tuono, together with his two assistants, the lively Doppio Whisky and Tom, who is black. In their first adventure, our heroes (who travel up the Mississipi on their boat, the Susannah), help a young couple to escape from a gang of outlaws.
