SKORPIO AND OTHER MAGAZINES FROM «RECORD EDITIONS» (Part 2)
In a previous note we summarize the contents and changes experienced by Skorpio magazine since its launch in 1974 until its demise in the mid 90s. This time we complete the picture reviewing other titles published by Record Editions.
It was the second title that launched after Skorpio by Record Editions. The entire first issue (December 1974) and much of the second was dedicated to publishing “The Ballad of the Salt Sea”, the initial saga of the famous character of Hugo Pratt who gave name to the magazine. Among the most outstanding series of Corto Maltese counted “The Voortrekers” set in the time of the Boer War in South Africa, “The Cobra”, “Canada Joe”, “Lady Shadow” and “Press”, war stories told by a war correspondent, for the style of “Ernie Pike”.
The novelty or difference regarding Skorpio and Corto Maltese was offered reprints of old works Oesterheld and Hugo Pratt as “Sergeant Kirk” (created in 1953), “Ticonderoga” and the aforementioned “Ernie Pike”.
TIT – BITS
In its first version Tit-Bits was a magazine that was published from 1909-1957 and whose material was approximately preferably dedicated to serials (folletines) and adventure stories, but also included cartoons. Record Editions took that title for a new magazine whose first issue appeared in1975 and in its initial stage included the series “The Vikings”, “Reno Reagan”, “Jet Power”, short stories by Carlos Roume (extraordinary cartoonist horses) plus the contribution of the Italian series “The Master” and “The Aristocratics”. To this material was added the reissue of the adaptations from literary works made by the great master José Luis Salinas (Cisco Kid) in the forties.
Among the series that were later published include “Man of Richmond”, “Nobody” drawn by Alberto Breccia, “Black Series” and “Timber Lee”, a western written by Italian Mino Milani and drawings of Juan Arancio. Also reissued novels adaptations made by Bruno Premian-another pioneer of the comic in Argentina-released new versions of two popular comic “Bull Rochett” and the extraordinary “Watami”, originally written by Oesterheld and now scripted and drawn by Jorge Moliterni. Finally say that Tit- Bits was the only title (with Skorpio) Record Editions that lasted until the early nineties.
Another prestigious title of Argentina comics that appeared in 1939 and allowed to meet in our great American comic series. Disappeared in the mid-50s, he dusted Record Editions to baptize another of his journals which began publication in December 1975. This new Pif-Paf also gave great importance to the reissue of «classics» like “Ann and Dan” (the first cartoon with his own script Hugo Pratt), “Wheelling” (also from Pratt) and two works by Oesterheld and Alberto Breccia: “Sherlock Time” and “Mort Cinder”. Among the new series may be mentioned the police “Chinatown”, “Blond and Hook» and “Macho”.
It could be considered “Cinderella” Record Editions so little is promoting her remaining items in magazines. Besides there were published stories unit like “South of the Sun” by Jorge Moliterni and “Jingo” Italian material drawn by Ivo Pavone, an artist who came to Argentina along with Hugo Pratt and resided here for more than a decade. Gunga Din appeared in late 1980 and its slogan was “Adventures in Images”.
Title which began publishing in 1981 and whose material (printed full color) predominated unit and also included stories illustrated stories. Juan Zanotto, Arturo Del Castillo, Alberto and Enrique Breccia, Lucho Olivera and Carlos Roume were among the artists who contributed their work to this journal.
Magazine appeared in 1988 which combined new material with reissues series already known in other Record Editions magazine as “Bandits”, “Gala”, “Comanchero”, “New York, year zero”, “Riff” and “Alvar Mayor”.
