Hugo Pratt

Beyond Corto Maltese

Since the 1960s, Italian artist Hugo Pratt has been enthralling audiences all over the world with his series of adventure comics about the poetic naval hero Corto Maltese.

Set in the time around the First World War, along with Corto, we meet bloodthirsty ­Indians, raving mad German admirals and seductive but deadly Russian countesses.

The world is always on the verge of ­destruction with Pratt. But there is still time for a tango, a smoke and one more ­voyage.

The series about Corto Maltese is a legend in ­European comic art.
