Created by entrepreneur and brand expert Nicolas De Santis, DESANTIX launched Captain Euro® in the 1990s to the worldwide media who adopted it as Europe’s Superhero. Since then, Captain Euro® has been featured on the cover of the Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine the BBC, CNN and in hundreds of media in 5 continents for over two decades. The media frenzy around the character continues to this day with constant appearances on radio, television, online and printed press.
Many of DESANTIX’s Captain Euro motion comic strips merge full-fledged animation, video, sound and interactivity with comic storytelling, delivering pure entertainment and a more powerful emotional connection with its audience than traditional comic strips.
The DESANTIX comic universe counts among its characters CAPTAIN EURO, EUROPA, PITHAGORAS 1, SCARIO, MALA, DR. DIVIDER, NINOT, JUNIOR, THE TWINS and LUPO the wolf. DESANTIX’s Captain Euro® is designed to appeal to both young and older readers, providing specific European identity content and products produced for each target audience. The entire DESANTIX universe includes multiple comic narratives dealing with non-fiction, real life issues as well as fictional narratives and adventures.
DESANTIX uses comic journalism (a form of journalism that covers news or non-fiction events using the framework of comics) to deal with news, topics, issues and non-fiction events, including explaining complex European Union, societal and global political issues to make them understandable, fun and digestible by the general public.
