Odiseo, by Martin Sauri

In his spare time, J. M. Martín Sauri joined writer F. P. Navarro to plan out 'Odiseo', an ambitious adaptation of The Oddyssey. They managed to publish this cherished work in US magazine Heavy Metal and it was a milestone in Martín Sauri's career. Taking advantage of the experience he had acquired in the 1970s, Martín Sauri tackled subsequent foreign assignments, such as, such as the 'Kerry and Lefty Drake' police series (Sweden, 1986-1993), horror stories for Bastei (Germany, 1980-1995), and contributions to magazines Lanciostory and Skorpio (Italy, since 1995)
Martín Sauri has also worked for Spanish publishers, such as García & Beá, Norma, etc. For Bruguera, he drew an Alejandro Magno biography. For RBA, he drew 'La Mariposa y la Llama', an erotic story written by E. S. Abulí. In addition he worked in illustration and, during the 1990s, in animated cartoons.
