Between 1991 and 1992 Editora Globo published some of the Nathan Never issues, respecting the format and order of the original Italian series. The covers were laminated.
Despite its notable success, only 11 monthly issues and two special editions of Dylan Dog were published between 1991 and 1992. In 1992 the special story "Last Stop: The Nightmare" was published (the first team up between Dylan Dog and Martin Mystere, which was published in Italy in 1990). In 1993, the adventure "Incubus" was published using the same giant format (20x27 cm).
Other Bonelli comics.
Issues of two other Bonelli characters were published in Brazil, but with little success. Akim was published by Editora Noblet in the '70's and only eight issues of Bella & Bronco was published by Editora Globo between 1990 and 1991. "The Protagonists" of Rino Albertarelli were far more successful. This series was based on incidents from the real lives of some of the most famous people in the West. It was published between 1975 and 1977 by Editora Brasil-America and consisted of booklets that were 108 pages in a large and unusual format (21x28 cm). The Brazilian covers were done by Antonio Euzebio. Five albums were published: Billy the Kid; George A. Custer; Geronimo; Wyatt Earp; and Sitting Bull.
