Originally published in War Picture Library
67, 83, 168 and 281, these four stories showcase the spectacular art of one of the most gifted artists to work in European comics - Gino D'Antonio.
Born in Milan in 1927, he made his comics debut at the age of 20 with the series Jesse James. It was his work with Fleetway Publications that brought his art to an international audience through the pages of publications such as War
and Battle Picture Library
as well as the short-lived War at Sea Picture Library
His work on these comics seemed perfectly suited to the scripts. His attention to accurate detail of uniforms and weaponry that the stories required in no way compromised the rich range of characters he created, nor the dynamism of his art.
He subsequently collaborated on the highly successful series Storia Del West with Renzo Calegari. But for his fans it is his war story art which remains his strongest work. When you read these stories we think you will see why. WPL #67 Battle Drop
