Hugo Pratt’s series entitled Wheeling has been published for the first time in English in eBook format.

Cong Editions is the new publishing house of CONG SA – Hugo Pratt Art Properties, the company that manages all of Hugo Pratt’s work. Wheeling’s English-language eBooks are now available in all major online stores


The Wheeling eBooks follow right on the heels of Cong Editions’ electronic publishing debut in 2015: the publication of five eBooks dedicated to the Scorpions of the Desert series. Wheeling, one of Pratt’s most fascinating stories, was created in the ‘60’s, and therefore it precedes Corto Maltese by a few years. As it is set during the American War of Independence, its protagonists are the Native Americans who are fighting the colonists. But Wheeling is also a story of friendship, ties and separation, as can be seen with the main characters, Criss Kenton and Patrick Fitzgerald.

Wheeling is considered a masterpiece in the world of comic-strips, both for the epic nature of the plot and the accuracy of the details, the latter being the result of documented research and a testament to Hugo Pratt’s passion for the subject matter. All the artistic and literary qualities that made Hugo Pratt’s name great can be found in Wheeling.

An interesting tidbit: thanks to this work, Pratt was given honorary citizenship of the town of Wheeling in West Virginia.
