Ray e Roy (1946)

Texts by Mario Faustinelli and Hugo Pratt

This single story Ray and Roy and the Gangsters (T.N.“Ray and Roy and the Gangsters”)
 was split up into 14 parts and appeared in 3 series of the Albi Uragano comic books.

This is a humorous series starring two giant twins who are archeology students and whose main sphere of action is in the museums of the imaginary metropolis of California City. They are often assisted by a cheerful and likeable group of mischievous small boys and manage to foil dastardly plots hatched up by villains (generically referred to as “the gangsters”). This is undoubtedly a minor work suited to filling out a comic book like Albo Uragano that, when published, was ahead of its time.
