Francesco Dimitri is an Italian writer, author of fantasy and essay novels. His novels are urban fantasy, sometimes with new, weird, steampunk or horror themes, often dealing with magic, ufology, anthropology and pop culture. Among the Italian fantasy writers, he was one of the first to set his stories in an Italian city (in this case Rome). Mario Alberti graduated in Economics with a thesis on distribution in the comics market. He began working as a professional illustrator and writer in 1990 with Holly Connick , a short story published in the magazine Fumo di China. In 2000, Alberti teamed up with Luca Enoch to co-write a project for the French market: Morgana, published in 2002 by Les Humanoides Associes. Morgana has been translated in France, Italy, Germany, Portugal and Spain and the first issue was also released in the US. In 2004, he collaborated with writer Kurt Busiek to create the new series Redhand. Alberti has also illustrated some covers for Federico Memola's series Jonathan Steele, and since 2006 has been collaborating with DC Comics.
