Largo, born Large Winczlav, is adopted by the billionaire Nero Winch. When his adoptive father is murdered, he inherits the Group W, a vast conglomerate worth $10Bn. In the series, Largo faces difficult situations where he has to fight competitors determine to steal his inheritance or take control of the group. He is helped in this task by some trustworthy executives and his childhood friends, Simon Ovronnaz and Freddy Kaplan.
What I like in this series is that Largo is a playboy through and through. He is handsome, seduces women easily and do not hesitate to confront corrupt politicians, sadist businessmen as well as to box their vulgar henchmen. The drawings are really good and the scenarios are always intelligent. Each story within the series lasts for two books so do not hesitate to buy them two by two in order to avoid an unbearable suspense.
