Magnus, aka Roberto Raviola, is one of the most eclectic authors in the italian and european comicbook scene. His works reached the most diverse genres, from fantasy to erotic. Starting off with an essential style he later on evolved by researching the finest details. We had the opportunity to have a good chat with his son Riccardo.
He set an example in treating “uncomfortable” themes. He treated subjects such as politics, war, hate, violence, drugs, pornography, horror, but he never stopped in front of these subjects, always coming out clean.
Three works that I would suggest to a new Magnus fan? Lo Sconosciuto, Le 110 Pillole, Tex.
Together with his son Riccardo we dug in this great artist’s archives and we decided to dedicate a capsule collection as a tribute to one of his masterpieces: Vendetta Macumba. Sweatshirt, t-shirt and snowboard, all in black and white.
