Rossi comic book goes on sale

A Verona graphics company has put on sale a collection of cells drawn by comic book artist Milo Manara for ‘Quarantasei', a comic written in collaboration with Valentino Rossi.

The cells featured in the new book are drawings by the author before the colouring process. This first edition contains 3000 copies.

Rossi is the main character of the story, which also features his dog Guido and a selection of his heroes, including Steve McQueen, Jim Morrison and Enzo Ferrari. Camel Yamaha's reigning World Champion has already shown a selection of the etchings on his helmet at the Italian GP in Mugello. The MotoGP star has also penned a short introduction for the graphic novel.

"Comics are magical. For a big fan like me, to be part of this imaginary collective created by the most important comic book author in the world is an unbeatable feeling."

"In addition to being an amazing artist, Milo is a person with great humanity. He's someone who you love from the first instant," added Rossi.
