The Italian Disney production also came very close after the American. Only one year after the creation of the strip, the Italian Disney publications took off in 1931. When the American 'Mickey' was already published in Italy, Italian artists Giovanni Bissietta and Guglielmo Guastaveglia did some 'Mickey' one-pagers for various publications. These activities were shortlived, however, since they didn't have any formal agreements with King Features Syndicate, who owned the rights to the strip. Topolino magazine was launched in 1932 by the publisher Nerbini, and continued from 1935 by Mondadori. The first legitimate Italian Disney story was created by Federico Pedrocchi in 1937, who also started his own Paperino title. The big production didn't took off until after World War II, since political differences dissabled the further use of the Disney characters during the War. Since the 1980s, the Italian style in Disney comics developed from a traditional line to an expressive one, initiated by Giorgio Cavazzano. A popular character in Italian comics is Paperinik, Donald's superhero counterpart. When Disney took over the Italian production, a real studio was created, as well as a Disney Academy.
