Giovan Battista Carpi was an Italian comics artist.

Carpi worked mainly for Disney comics, mostly on books featuring Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck, although he occasionally drew Mickey Mouse as well. He created Paperinik with Guido Martina. He also created other well-known comic characters for Edizioni Bianconi, as Geppo, Nonna Abelarda, and Soldino.

Disney parody artist

As the German-language Duckipedia notes, "His love for historical fashions and costumes predisposed Carpi for Disney parodies of world literature, such as Paperino principe di Dunimarca, a parody of William Shakespeare's Hamlet, or Il mistero dei candelabri, a parody of Victor Hugo's Les Misérables."

Other popular parodies by Carpi include Guerra e Pace (1986, based upon War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy), Paperino e il vento del Sud (1982, Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell), Paperino e il giro del mondo in otto giorni (1962, Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne), Paperin Caramba y Carmen Olè (1979, Carmen by Georges Bizet), Paolino Pocatesta e la bella Franceschina (1980, Inferno by Dante Alighieri), Topolino corriere dello Zar (1966, Michael Strogoff by Jules Verne), La metamorfosi di un papero (1991, The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka).
