In this final entry of Hugo Pratt’s epic series, the master graphic novelist returns to the theme he first explored in the initial episode–the search for the lost continent of Mu, the mythical Atlantis.
The threat of World War I is in the air when the catamaran of the pirate Rasputin rescues a castaway who has been bound hand and foot to a raft and shoved off to drift, until certain death, on the waves of the Pacific. This man has a name destined to become legend: Corto Maltese.
The new story, the third realized by the two Spanish authors after Hugo Pratt’s death, is the prequel to “The Ballad of the Salty Sea.” “Tarowean’s Day” concludes with the iconic image of Corto tied to the raft, right where his millions of fans discovered him for the first time in 1967.
The Secret Rose, is the ninth of the twelve titles of Corto Maltese that narrate the adventures of the romantic sailor created by Hugo Pratt in 1967 and now published by IDW Publisher in the USA.
Tango, is the eighth of the twelve titles of Corto Maltese that narrate the adventures of the romantic sailor created by Hugo Pratt in 1967 and now published by IDW Publisher in the USA.
The six stories in this volume continue directly from Pratt’s “Caribbean Suite” cycle in Under the Sign of Capricorn and Beyond the Windy Isles. They are set during 1917-1918, as the action moves from South America to Europe against the backdrop of the First World War.
The origins of a character like Corto reflect his protagonist spirit in spite of himself: in this story, in fact, it flits like a ghost over Manchuria at the beginning of the 1900’s, right in the middle of a conflict that foreshadows the clashes between powers that will mark the first half of the twentieth century.
The action, set in 1917, takes Corto Maltese from the Mosquito Coast to Barbados to a deadly struggle among Jivaro head-hunters in the Peruvian Amazon.
With this book Hugo Pratt leaves behind the short story form he’d used for 21 interrelated tales and presents a truly epic graphic novel.
Corto Maltese: Under the Sign of Capricorn collects the first six inter-connected short stories Pratt created in France in the early 1970s: “The Secret of Tristan Bantam,” “Rendez-vous in Bahia,” “Sureshot Samba,” “The Brazilian Eagle,” “So Much for Gentlemen of Fortune,” and “The Seagull’s Fault.”
In these four tales, Corto contends with tremendously real monsters: racism, fundamentalism, and the abuse of power. In the face of such horrors, a free spirit like Corto cannot help but take a stand—the least convenient one.
José Muñoz and Marco Steiner are together on a hypnotic journey on Corto Maltese's path.
