Magico Vento (Italian Magic Wind) is the character of an Italian comics book/western with the same name, issued monthly by Sergio Bonelli Editore. Magico Vento's true name is Ned Ellis, a former member of US Army who had become an Indian shaman. Graphically inspired to Irish actor Daniel Day-Lewis, Ellis is usually accompanied by Willy Richards, a journalist nicknamed Poe for his resemblance with the famous American writer.
The story is set in the United States, in the years after 1850, and is strongly connected to the American history of the period. Magico Vento, who had gained a strong reputation among the Sioux (Dakota) tribe who had housed him, often meets historical characters like George Armstrong Custer, Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull. He also took active part to notable events like the Battle of Little Big Horn.
