Italian architect drew cartoon of A. E. van Vogt's 1950 short story "Enchanted Village"

Nearly twenty years ago, back in 1992, Italian architect Massimo Moro drew a hip 17-page cartoon adaptation of Canadian-born science fiction writer A. E. van Vogt’s well-known 1950 short story “Enchanted Village” (“Villaggio incantato”), in which a rocket ship pilot named Bill Jenner, the sole survivor of a doomed expedition to the Red Planet, struggles to endure the sweltering, waterless Martian environment. Check it out!

Massimo Moro lives in Torino, Italia. Grazie, Massimo!
