Nicola Genzianella

Nicola Genzianella

Nicola Genzianella was born on January 15, 1967 in Milan. He attended the Scuola del Fumetto in Milan.

In 1994, Nicola began to work on the journal L'Intrepido and created the series Crononauti and No Exit with Giorgio Schottler.

Later, he worked with the publisher Xenia on their collection of comics adaptations of 19th-century novels.

Around the same time, he began to work on the magazine Giornalino, which caught the eyes of the editors at Sergio Bonelli Editore.

Since 2000, he has worked at Bonelli on the epic Dampyr series about a vampire hunter who's half-vampire himself.

In 2008, Nicola joined Stéphane Bec and Christophe Betbeder as artist on the second volume of the Bunker adventure series published by Dupuis (Europe Comics 2017). The series has earned recognition at comics festivals and was published in 2015 in Italy.

In terms of his taste in illustration, Nicola's affinities lie with detail-rich realism.

Favorite Italian authors include Sergio Toppi, Vittorio Giardino, Corrado Mastantuono and Milazzo. All-time favorites are Moebius, Gillon, De La Fuente, Jiménez, Hermann and Alex Ross. But Alberto Breccia takes the cake.
