As far as I know, Sergio Toppi still drawing comic books, last editions were made for Mosquito Edition...He published a fantastic sequal of Sharaz-de. :+)))
Dino Battaglia died in 1983 at his drawing table, he was working on a big graphic novel...

Sad to hear that these are older works! I had hoped for a relapse into the pleasures that only 6b lead can afford to those in love with the more tactile aspects of the craft.And the smells... I miss the smells.
Anyway, please dig up some more gems from the past, they truly are a pleasure to look at.

You'll be pleased to know that the the originals were drawn on Japanese paper so organic that it has almost grown legs and learned to shit.
Yacin, thank you for the information on Toppi...I thought the Mosquito editions were re-prints. Is he still drawing men in flairs and chelsea boots?
Battaglia R.I.P.
