Tex Willer

One of the most popular and long-lived Italian cartoon characters, Tex Willer was created in 1948 by Gian Luigi Bonelli and illustrated for many years by Aurelio Galleppini (usually known simply as ‘Gallep’). Other illustrators have subsequently contributed to drawing the stories, amongst them Ferdinando Fusco, Giovanni Ticci, Claudio Villa and Roberto Raviola (the legendary ‘Magnus’).
