History and profile
It mainly consisted of British comics, starting from the title character Tiger Tim (renamed as Jumbo), a comic strip series created by Julius Stafford Baker and taken over by Herbert Sydney Foxwell. A key role in the success of the magazine was also played by Rob the Rover, an adventure comic series by Walter Henry Booth which was translated as Lucio L'avanguardista (i.e. "The young avantgarde Lucio") and whose main character was adapted as a fascist airman. It also introduced to the Italian audience several notable American comics including Rex Maxon's Tarzan and Ace Drummond. It closed after the banning of the foreign comics ordered by Fascist MinCulPop in 1938.
