Jones, Captain. Captain Jones was created by the pseudonymous “Nino Della Vega” and appeared in the Italian dime novel Sottomarino X2 #1-63 (1934-1935); the series was reprinted in Spain in 1934.

Captain Jones is an Italian rewrite of Jörn Farrow. Jones is Italian and pilots the super-submarine the X2. Jones’ adventures are similar to Farrow’s, including fantastic elements and the de rigueur Yellow Perils. Jones appears in stories with titles like “The Phantom Island,” “Fu-Nang, the Chinese Merchant,” and “John of Sumatra.”
