Fumetto Forever Card #31: GIORGIO REBUFFI!

To date we have involved over 30 authors of the Ninth Art in the solidarity card project, we will never stop thanking them for their time, passion and willingness to make a fundamental contribution to a project that surprised ourselves first of all, in seeing how many satisfactions it has brought us and how much it has branched out.

It was also time to think about those who, unfortunately, are no longer with us, because comics have a long, compelling and exciting history. Made up of many characters who have remained in the hearts of readers, as well as many authors and designers who created them. Comics Card #31 is dedicated to one of these, a historic name in Italian comics, Giorgio Rebuffi, born in 1928, who died in 2014.

Not only Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, Italian newsstands have experienced a period, which actually lasted many years, where children and teenagers ran to buy American humorous comics as high quality Italian productions that saw a succession of unforgettable signatures of the Ninth Art.

Many icons of Italian comics are linked to the name of Giorgio Rebuffi, from Beppe and Cucciolo to Tiramolla, from Trottolino to even Disney’s Uncle Scrooge. Most of all, the Steppe Wolf remains unforgettable with his improbable “macaroni Russian”, Pugaciòff.

The solidarity Comic Card #31 is therefore a double tribute to a character who has entered the collective imagination of Italian comics and to his creator. For this reason, as often happens with our solidarity publishments, the circulation has a precise meaning: 159 with reference to 1959, Pugaciòff’s first appearance in the Edizioni Alpe albums.

The initiative was made possible by the collaboration with Sbam Comics, the current publisher of Pugaciòff’s stories and by the availability of the Rebuffi Family who made it possible to achieve everything. Equally and always proactive, the collaboration with ANAFI (National Association of Friends of Comics) and the WOW Comics Museum in Milan.

Comics Card #31 will be previewed at the 65th Anafi Comics Exhibition, Bologna Fair, on Saturday 26 November 2022 where you can find copies of the solidarity card both at the Figurine Forever stand and at the Sbam Comics stand.

Fumetto Forever Card #30: SILVER!

“Hey Beppe!”, This time we play in advance not waiting for the anniversary and this time we involved one of the most beloved Italian cartoonists and with him, of course, one of the most read strips. We challenge anyone, not to have had at least once a diary, a notebook, a pencil case, of course a register or really much more of Alberto, the wolf in constant struggle with Moses and the other inhabitants of the farm to be able to reach the arms of his beloved hen Marta.

We were lucky enough to meet the famous designer at the WOW Museum in Milan, whom we support with some of our solidarity stickers and whom we thank, through the Director Luigi F. Bona it was possible to get back in touch with the author of Lupo Alberto and Cattivik for to get to this splendid solidarity figurine, it has yet to come out and has already entered the myth.

As often happens with our productions, we wanted to give a sporting connotation to the solidarity stickers, in this case the memory of the many strips read, starting from the legendary Eureka Pocket of Editoriale Corno, came to meet us. We talked about it with Silver and his staff, not only was an unpublished rugby-themed design born but, given the new graphics of our postcards, we were also able to insert that strip from many years ago that inspired us and that above all makes us still laughing a lot!

Lupo Alberto was born in 1973, even if our hero will become the main protagonist only a year later. Next year we imagine there will be many events to commemorate the 50th anniversary of this comic, all Italian pride, we will be there too, with our solidarity card, provided that of course it does not end sooner. After all, the limited and numbered edition is a tribute to the strip’s half-century.

FUMETTO FOREVER CARD #20: SANDRO DOSSI!

Geppo forever! Between the 40s and the 60s of the last century, we probably experienced the golden age of Italian serial comics, with the birth of an incredible number of characters, of many genres. One on which we really made the difference was the humorous genre, where we were able to reinvent American comics such as Popeye or Felix the cat (even at Disney we left our mark), but above all to create new ones, many, many.

The list is long, from Tiramolla to Soldino, from Pugacioff to Nonna Abelarda. Among these was a devil, who dreamed of being good and leaving hell. We are happy and excited to announce the solidarity Fumetto Card # 20 dedicated to the legendary GEPPO!

Among the many great artists who have alternated over the years (Carpi, Sangalli, etc.), Sandro Dossi certainly deserves a place of honor, his unmistakable trait we remember in many issues of comics that for decades children (not only them ..) have bought at newsstands.

Sandro enthusiastically embraced our proposal and we thank him, of course the good devil could only take on the role of the AC Milan player, his favorite team, including Dossi himself.

GEPPO for WOW MUSEUM!

100 copies of the 160 printed will be donated to the WOW Comics Museum of Milano to support their activities. For these 100 copies, please contact the Museum directly (http://www.museowow.it/). For the other 60 managed by our Association, refer to the information below.

FumettoForever Card #16: MASSIMO CAVEZZALI!

You’ll never swap alone! Our solidarity stickers have reached 50 releases, could we not celebrate this milestone with something extraordinary? We are thrilled to announce the Comic Card # 16 solidarity card, created by the legendary Massimo Cavezzali!

Massimo Cavezzali is synonymous with the history of Italian humorous comics, linked to the world of strips but not only. We loved him in the stories of the Dolline, the Dio Spa, Ava but also in his comic biographies on the great musicians, the one on Vasco Rossi is memorable and highly sought after. Right in this period, Cavezzali is in bookstores and comic shops with the new work “Comic submarine” (Vololibero Edizioni), the opportunity was too tempting not to try to contact him and his response was incredible, we thank him for this.

Our Comic Card solidarity stickers always have a sporting connotation, in this case it was easy, John, Paul, George and Ringo portrayed as Liverpool FC footballers. Four unpublished drawings made by Cavezzali for our edition.

In the beginning we had thought of making a single card, but Max’s drawings were too beautiful to combine them and therefore it was decided to make a monumental edition of 4 cards + postcards. Each of them is limited edition and numbered to 99 copies. We have also decided to add the number 50 behind our logo to celebrate this splendid achievement.

Consequently, the numbering restarts from 1 to 99 for each different solidarity card:
. #16/1 John Lennon
. #16/2 Paul McCartney
. #16/3 George Harrison
. #16/4 Ringo Starr

The set of 4 solidarity cards Fumetto Card # 16 will be presented in an exclusive preview at the Bologna Disco, Figurine and Comic Book Fair on 27/28 November 2021 at BolognaFiere, an event organized by Kolosseo.

FumettoForever Card #15: ADRIANO CARNEVALI!

Ronfi Forever! A great classic of Italian comics, a historical magazine of Italian comics. We are pleased to announce the Solidarity Comic Card # 15 dedicated to the Ronfi by Adriano Carnevali, on the occasion of an important anniversary.

A hundred of these years! In 1981, exactly forty years ago, the Ronfi were born in the legendary Corriere dei Piccoli: the laziest rodents in the world have since conquered generations of readers. This is why we decided to celebrate them with one, or rather two of our cards. We are in Milano, and it’s derby! The Comic Card # 15 is printed in 160 copies, numbered, from 1 to 80 we find the Ronfo/Inter, from 81 to 160 the Ronfo/Milan. Of course the jerseys are those of 1981. Let’s see which one finishes first and wins the derby!

RONFI for WOW MUSEUM!

100 copies of the 160 printed will be donated to the WOW Comics Museum of Milano to support their activities. For these 100 copies, please contact the Museum directly (http://www.museowow.it/). For the other 60 managed by our Association, refer to the information below.

FumettoForever Card #2: LEO ORTOLANI!

When we contacted Leo to make a card, the problem for him of not being a fan of football or other sports was easily overcome. The genius of the author of RATMAN immediately fell on L’ARBITRO (the referee), an absolute protagonist of football as much as the players. Not?

What Leo did not calculate is that in this way, we hope, we will have the excuse to involve him again next year, where there is the referee there must also be a linesman. Don’t you find?

Cinema fans cannot fail to remember a famous film with Lando Buzzanca, called The Referee, a jewel of Italian comedy to be rediscovered, if you do not know it yet.

We want to thank Leo Ortolani for joining our initiative with an unpublished drawing that will surely be appreciated by the many comics fans of the famous Emilian author.
