Fulmine, Dick. Dick Fulmine was created by the Italian creators Vincenzo Baggioli and Carlo Cossio (Ciclone, Jack Hilton, Alain la Foudre) and appeared in the comic strip “Dick Fulmine” (1938-1951); the strip was reprinted in Spain in 1940 as “Juan Centella.”

Dick Fulmine is a giant Italian-American policeman with the build and face of heavyweight champion boxer Primo Carnera (1906-1967). He operates in a crime-plagued Chicago similar to Dick Tracy’s. Fulmine has to deal with ordinary (if unusually brutal) gangsters and extraordinary villains, including the female thief White Mask, the evil hypnotist Flattavion, and the gigantic brute Zambo.
