During my summer in Angouleme, I met a lot of very cool people and one of them was an italian artist that kept talking about his time at Disney which I found really intriguing as Disney doesn’t have an animation studio in Italy but the Disney he was referring to was … a very different one.
In Europe we can find Disney monthly comic strips at any newsagent. Those comics are not all done in the US as I was assuming but in Italy, mainly by Italian comic artists. Those are great, if you don’t believe me have a look!! Luckily the best stories are online, in italian unfortunately. Look at those beautiful lines, composition, staging, posing, the overall appeal! It is wonderful!
