that’s just great. I mean, this is one of the most positive aspects of the Internet (there are an endless variety of negative ones to counter-balance, but let’s look at the good ones): being able to perform such kind of researches in a transversal fashion. A thing which would have been unthinkable in pre-Internet times.
Your italian is perfectly understandable, what’s important is the phrase structure, and you handle it very well.
Besides, I blush as I listen back to the interview I had with Jack Kirby in 1991. My english was BAD, and in many aspects, still is (especially for the lack of vocabulary).
My interests used to revolve more around Disney and classic silver age Marvel comics, up to 1990, but since 1995 I have grown affected to some classic french-belgian ligne claire authors (Edgar P. Jacobs, Willy Vandersteen) and I tried, with the obstacle of the language, to deepen my knowledge of the "golden age" of japanese comics (which means post-war production, since they did not have a proper "modern conception" of comics, or "manga" before). Especially Tetsuwan Atom (Astro Boy) by Osamu Tezuka.
In the last 6-7 years, I guess it’s also a consequence of becoming more mature, I started to grow an interest in the history of our own italian production, especially the pre-war publisher A.V.E. (which published what we may define a sort of counter-altar to the USA genre of air-fighters comics, "Romano il legionario", a moderately fascist (but more correctly patriotic) war hero, and "La Famiglia Zoo", a utterly original family of antropomorphic animals decidedly italian and pretty different from the Disney characters).
Along the lines of this research I developed in the last months an insane interest+passion for golden age comics and for the inter-war comics production, of any nationality. At the moment I am collecting Lev Gleason's Daredevil Comics, quite a suicidal attempt…
And… no, I am afraid but I have never nurtured an interest for "fumetti neri" and the pocket size books we had starting in the 1960s.
User "Squitty" on the VC forum is an expert, but I guess you have already found out…
