Alessandro Ripane was born in Genoa (Italy), exactly in the middle of 1989.
Due to the lack of wild animals in the city of Genoa, Alessandro bought a lot of books about it.
Due to the lack of superheroes in the city of Genoa, Alessandro bought a lot of comics about it.
Needless to say, he suddenly became an expert in both categories, even if now he draws almost everything, except the aliens, because he’s not sure how they are dressed.
Now he’s busy fighting the fall of his hair, learning how to draw aliens and watching a lot of movies about monsters and zombies that he has not seen yet.
