Description

In november 2016 I visited the then 91 years old Dino Attanasio at his home in Brussels for an interview. He was very kind to give me this dédicace of Johnny Goodbye, the gangster comic series created by scriptwriter Martin Lodewijk. It was published in the Dutch comic magazines Pep and Eppo from 1969 till 1992.
