The first issue of TEX, reproduced from the historic original plates.
The beginning of the legendary epic, now in an unprecedented prestige edition that contains all the original plates, including traces and processing marks. With Il Totem Misterioso, the first story in this volume - and the first story ever in the famous series about the Texan ranger - the adventure of Tex Willer, immortal icon of the Italian western and of international comics, begins.
