Oliver Bold

Oliver Bold

Published as an appendix to Il Piccolo Ranger, this English production had splendid illustrations by the great Dino Battaglia, whose particularly inspired rendering offered a wealth of pictorial detail. Having inherited from his uncle the command of the Orsa Bianca, a pirate ship that tormented the Spanish fleet, Oliver Bold decided to use his ship to free the slaves held prisoner by the Bey of Algeria. At his side, throughout his adventures, was a large man called Big Luke.
