March, 1980: "Scacco matto" hits the newsstands. It is the issue number 233 of Tex Gigante, a comic-book born in 1948 as a little strip that has become a success with no comparisons, and in time even a national phenomenon.
Just as we celebrates 70 years of the character's editorial life, here is this book in three tomes (this is the second: from 1980 to 1999) that presents the complete repertoire of the series' covers. An illustrated history of a modern myth, but also a road full of curious stories and anecdotes.
