Sergio Bonelli’ birthday
Originally shared by Grand Comics Database
Sergio Bonelli (2 December 1932 – 26 September 2011, Italy) was a comic book writer and publisher. His father, Gian Luigi Bonelli, created the long-running cowboy feature “Tex Willer” and in 1940 founded the company that now bears his son’s name — Sergio Bonelli Editore, a premier publisher of Italian comics.
Sergio Bonelli became a writer in the late 1950s. He used the pen-name ‘Guido Nolitta’ to distinguish himself from his father. In 1961, he and artist Gallieno Ferri created “Zagor”. Bonelli wrote almost all Zagor stories until 1980.
In the late 1970s, he wrote numerous “Tex Willer” stories. In 1990 he created the mini-series “River Bill” with art by Francesco Gamba.
He became chairman of Sergio Bonelli Editore (at that time called Edizioni Araldo) in 1957. The present name of the company was adopted in 1990.
