About Pacific Comics Club
Pacific Comics Club launched simultaneously in France and Italy in the mid-sixties under the direction of Tony Raiola.
Most Pacific Comics Club publications are reprints of Golden Age newspaper comic strips in their original language as well as in French and Italian translations. In adapting the strips to a book format, careful attention is paid to preserving as close as possible the sequence of panels and original colors.
Later, Pacific Comics Club branched out into selling books done by other publishing houses producing some significant comic strip reprints. Chief among these were Fantagraphics Books, IDW, and Kitchen Sink Press.
