Marco Turini, an artist from Pontedera, got his interest in comics through his father, who was a letterer on the famous 'Tex' series. He began his career in the early 1990s, drawing for the Boomerang fanzine, and for the daily Il Tirreno. Since the mid-1990s, he is a regular contributor of stories to the Selen review of the 3ntini publishing house, either on his own scripts or in cooperation with Alessio Schreiner and G. Caputo. He has also done 'Santiago', 'Samuel Band' and cover illustrations for Star Comics. Turini has additionally cooperated with Fantagraphics, as well as the daily Il Centro and Corriere di Bilt. His 'Elio e Luna' series appeared in dailies like La Nazione, Il Resto del Carlino and Il Giorno.
Turini launched the character 'Claudia Poe' on the internet (through Lycos and Dot Com), but she has subsequently appeared in dailies like Il Tirreno, La Nazione, Quotiano.net and Il Centro, on radio, television (local TV and MTV) and in a comic book called 'I Sogni di Claudia' (Titivillus/Dot Com edizioni, 2002). In recent years, he has drawn for Miss Italia, Sesso Alieno, Blue and Underground Press.
