Air War Stories

Originally published in War Picture Library #49 and Air Ace Picture Library #11, #37 and #54, these four stories showcase the art of the great Ferdinando Tacconi. His style is immediately recognizable, with a very clear line work and some interesting curly cues done in pen and ink. He wisely used an uncluttered art that, with the passage of time, became more and more limited to the essential. The care he applied to the environment and details of each panel he drew, especially in his way of presenting vehicles or his beloved aircraft, made him one of the top artists around the world. In fact, Tacconi would never hide his deep love for flying machines, which accompanied him throughout his career, both inside and outside the comic pages he drew.
