Giorgio Gich is the author of the erotic science fiction comic 'Alika'. The series appeared from 1965 in the magazine with the same name. At first, Alika was quite similar to Jean-Claude Forest's 'Barbarella'. During the series's running, Alika started to resemble the Swedish filmstar Anita Ekberg more and more. Alika is a beautiful alien from the planet Absur who travels through space, interfering in political situations on strange planets. In his stories, Gich gives comments on Italian society. After two episodes, Gich teamed up with two scenarists: Ugo Sammarini and Paul Bennet.
