Tom and Jerry, by Nicola Del Principe

Nicola Del Principe was a versatile comic artist, who has worked in various genres. He illustrated countless humerous and realistic comics for the publishing houses Alpe and Bianconi, but he also drew erotic comics. He was introduced to the comic world through the fiancé of his wife's sister, Enzo Chiomenti, a comic artist himself. At that time, Del Principe drew posters for the Christian Democratic Party, but he eventually settled in Milan to commence his career in comics.
