Originally shared by Grand Comics Database
Carlo Boscarato (9 May 1926 – 12 June 1987, Italy) did his first comic in 1948, when he was assigned to do an episode of ‘Jim Brady’ for the publishing house AVE. This began a long collaboration with the magazine Il Vittorioso, that didn’t end until 1967. Boscarato mainly did historical comics, but also the series ‘Axel Lind’. From 1953 to 1959, he drew several caricatures and comics for Lo Scolaro. In 1967 and 1968 he briefly worked at the Studio Dami, where he did ‘Dickson, Pilota della Grande Guerra’.
After his time with Il Vittorioso, Boscarato turned to Il Messaggero dei Ragazzi, where he did several stories until 1975. He also began a longtime collaboration with Il Giornalino, a magazine for which he created series like ‘Giorgio Reli’, the western ‘Larry Yuma’ (scripts by Claudio Nizzi) and the humorous ‘Nico & Pepo’. In 1979, he adapted Stevenson’s ‘Treasure Island’, again scripted by Nizzi. Carlo Boscarato worked for Il Giornalino until his death in 1987.
