Corto Maltese, Equatoria
Juan Díaz Canales, Rubén Pellejero
In bookstores starting September 14, 2017
A false letter, a king that no one has ever seen, and a magic mirror: three clues for an unforgettable adventure that will cause Corto Maltese to cross his destiny with that of young Churchill, the poet Kavafis, and a handful of women who are decidedly out of the ordinary.
On the 50th anniversary of his creation, Corto revisits the landmarks that distinguished the life of his creator: from Venice with its mysteries to the heart of colonial Africa, a fascinating reconnaissance into the places of Hugo Pratt’s memories.
