About the Author
A highly acclaimed Italian comics scriptwriter of long standing, Alessandro Sisti (1960-present) started out his comics career at Staff di IF, a funny animal art studio tasked in the 1980s with various commercial franchises, both Disney and non.
Coming into his own in the 1990s, Sisti earned especial acclaim for writing many early issues of Paperinik New Adventures, a series (reprinted today as IDW's Duck Avenger) bringing Donald Duck's superhero exploits into a more modern, scary, and serious environment. Following up on this popular triumph, Sisti went on to scribe long adventures starring the Junior Woodchucks and short ones featuring a wealth of Disney feature film characters, from the rats of Ratatouille to Jack Sparrow and the Pirates of the Caribbean.
Apart from basic Disney comics work, Sisti has acted as a teacher of other Disney talents, at Milan's Accademia Disney, and has continued a wealth of non-Disney comics work—as both a historian and as an artist, for instance on a classic Anne of Green Gables comics adaptation.
