Curt has Another Flickr Stream: Fumetti

Which you can see here.

'Fumetti' is Italian for 'puff of smoke' and refers to the word balloons in a comic which to their eye looked like a puff of smoke. Italian comics have a diverse line of genres way outside of superhero comics: Crime, Horror, SciFi, Thrillers, Romances, Porn, and mixes of the above. ZORA is a mix of sex and Hammer-Horror. A Virgin who was made into a vampire by Dracula himself before she became a 'woman.'

The digest format these Fumetti use are very much like Mexican 'Historietas' or 'Little stories' which feature a wide range of pulpy subject matter. Easy to drop into the backpack and read on the bus or train.
