Corto Maltese eBook

eBooks are coming: discover Corto Maltese

Corto Maltese is a sailor, an adventurer, a privateer, a “man of fortune.”

Joining the likes of Ulysses, Corto takes his place amongst the great wayfarers of history, yearning to stand before magic and mystery in distant lands. He takes his place amongst men and women who know that body and spirit are renewed through risk and adventure.
As each episode of his life is unveiled, Corto seems to be moved by clearly recognizable desires. A journey may begin with the hunt for treasure, for a magic ring, or by attempting to decode an ancient map. We soon learn that he is less interested in the goal at hand than in the sensual rush of new experiences. All the while, he never loses his innate appreciation for true friendship or genuine respect for the individuals who come across his path.

It is impossible to pin down Corto’s politics or his social ideals. The tales of his exploits take us to places as far flung as Manchuria, the Caribbean, Ethiopia, Ireland, Patagonia, New Guinea, and Polynesia, and span approximately the first thirty years of the twentieth century. Yet, his spirit and his language are utterly modern.
The world of Corto Maltese is a kaleidoscope of cultural meeting points, and of the possibilities within human nature when we are placed in vastly different environments, or faced with daunting and larger than life personalities. The range and intensity of these interfaces produce states of mind that are somewhere between reality and the imagination.
