After the master, Hirohiko “JoJo” Araki, Edizioni Star Comics announces that the sensei Noboru Rokuda, author of Dash best friend – Gigi la Trottola and F – Engines on the Track, will be a guest at Lucca Comics and Games 2019.

Lucca Comics & Games is pleased to welcome the master Rokuda Noboru, a brilliant and prolific cartoonist japanese author, among other things, of the famous Dash best friend. Funny manga sports of the beginning of the eighties, Dash best friend has inspired an eponymous animated series, which – arrived in Italy in 1983 with the title “Gigi la trottola” – has become in a short time, a real phenomenon of costume.
The manga tells the misadventures of resenting kappei Sakamoto (Gigi Sullivan in the Italian edition of the cartoon), a frivolous guy and philanderer is unexpectedly equipped with large capacity sports... in spite of an implausible stature of even a meter!!!
Despite the obvious physical limitations, to try to impress a girl best friend chooses to subscribe to the club that seems to be less suitable to him: that of a basketball. It will be the beginning of an incredible epic that lead him to try different sports, to face ever stronger opponents, and... to find the love of his life!
