Afterwards, Rotundo created 'Il Detective senza Nome' and 'I Padroni del Silenzio', that were both published in album. In 1987, he created the series 'Sera Torbara' in Comic Art. Afterwards, Rotundo turned to erotic comics, starting with 'Ex-Libris Eroticis' in Playmen. For this same magazine, he started the series 'Rudy X' (with Franco Saudelli and Rodolfo Torti) and 'Guerra Calda'. With the Belgian scenarist Jean Dufaux, Rotundo created a comic biography of Paolo Pasolini, entitled 'Pig! Pig! Pig!'.
