In 1962 the Brothers Missaglia created the heroic humorous comic 'I Tre Marines', about three marines in Mexico. From 1966 to 1981, the two brothers worked for Jeunesse publishers in France, where they created the 'Tarzan' clone 'Kali', set in the forests of India. In the late 1970s they realized some stories of 'Mister No', as well as the western 'Judas' (artwork in cooperation with Ivo Pavone).
