Here's one of my childhood favorites that I still own.
The Italian version of Thor #2 from 1971.
I was 11 years old when my parents bought this for me.

I was able to return to Italy in 1991 for work.
I found that I could ask for a tour of the Italian Play Press compound where their comics were printed.
Pretty damn cool to see all that and I was able to purchase copies of the newest Thor series #1 - #33. All NM and never circulated.

Here is #1.

Yes, I can read/speak Italian fluently. My mother was 100% Italian and I lived in Italy during my formative years of school (grades 6-12).
I have returned there many times to work. My wife and I went there on our honeymoon. My Italian heritage is a very big part of who I am and that's why I collect Italian comics and toys. Very Happy

You must like Olive Garden. Just kidding.

Man, the badassness of those books, especially the Thors, cannot be fully comprehended.

Best not mess with the AECC Mafia Laughing
I love Italy had some nice holidays there, I must make an effort when I'm traveling to hunt down some different comics from around the world.

Thought I'd post a few more ITL books since I have been digging through my boxes lately.
Here's a Captain America from 1976.

Those are cool! I especially like the Capitan America. Are they the same as US books as far as content? Or do they adjust them for the market they're in?
