Alan Ford Comic Book Characters

Another nostalgic childhood-reminder for today - these are vivid characters from the Italian comic book Alan Ford, created by Max Bunker (Luciano Secchi) and Magnus (Roberto Raviola) and in print since 1969. This comic was immensely popular in former Yugoslavia (sadly not in the rest of Europe). Here is the synopsis, I'm sure you'll rate it promising ;)
Group TNT is an assembly of misfit secret agents, who operate from a flower shop in New York City, USA, which they use as a front for their secret headquarters. They are incompetent and lazy, yet intelligent and cunning, especially when it suits their own personal interests.
Oh wow I had to edit a misquote about this comic on wikipedia! My first edit heh. Because someone suggested Alan Ford only gained popularity in the last decade. The 1st postcard shows the iron-fisted and shrewd leader, the wheelchair-ridden Number One, a Methusalem character who embezzles the millions paid to the group by American government or city fathers for secret missions, while paying a pittance to his agents. The 2nd is everyone's favourite - Grunf,  a naturalized German-born inventor who comes up with all sorts of inventions doomed to failure. They are just soooo much fun! :)))
