STRUCTURE & TONE OF THE STORIES: The two protagonists in this series are children and, despite their superhuman potentialities, they behave as such. They always travel accompanied by an adult, they never go out late at night and wherever they stay they’re in the company of relatives. It is within this context that the storyline develops in its own way. They’re not out to put the world to rights, yet they are endowed with a strong sense of justice and they seek to do good in the face of evil.

Reading them in order is recommended. In full colors.

5 episodes ready for print.


Mathias is a blond 10 year-old. He’s knowledgeable for his age as a result of his somewhat cosmopolitan education.

Anna is a freckly 10 year-old redhead. Orphaned at an early age she has an elderly bedridden granny. Lively, intelligent and with a searching mind, she’s the one with the sense of humour and sharp one liners.

ARTIST BIO: Giancarlo Malagutti began his career in 1973 by drawing cartoons for the monthly publication Horror. He has worked alongside Renzo Barbieri and Giorgio Cavedon on several cartoons. Malagutti has drawn several one off short stories for Intrepido, Monello and Albo TV and has inked the drawings of Sergio Zaniboni for Diabolik which is where he began to write scripts.
