Comment

Frère de Guido Buzzelli, Raoul (1932-1982) est surtout connu pour sa série Peter Paper (Sam Bot pour l'édition française), binoclard lamentable et affamé mais supérieurement "membré" pour son malheur. Dans la série Identikit, Sam Bot devient l'acolyte d'un cambrioleur qui le rémunère en repas ! Raoul Buzzelli, à qui Elvifrance doit probablement ses plus grands succès (Sam Bot était tiré mensuellement à 75000 exemplaires dont 50000 étaient vendus) travaillait dans un incognito quasi total, ne signant jamais ses planches. Dépressif, il finit par se suicider à 50 ans en se jetant d'un pont.

About Raoul Buzzelli

Raoul Buzzelli was an Italian comic book artist. He cooperated with children's magazines like Fantasie Gioconde in the late 1950s, drawing 'Le avventure spaziali del Prof. Barbon' from scripts by Frank Privitera. He is best-known for drawing the humorous pornographic comic 'Sam Bot' from scripts by Franco Pippo. The strip originated in the 1973-1975 period as 'Peter Paper' in a series of adult pocket books published by Edizioni RG. A new series followed in 1976-1978 through Ediperiodici, and in France through Elvifrance. Raoul Buzzelli commited suicide in Rome in 1982, at the age of 50. He was the brother of comic artist Guido Buzzelli. Text (c) Lambiek
