Corto Maltese : the Ballad of the Salt Sea

Hugo Pratt
Hugo Pratt

Treasure hunter, sailor, and adventurer, Corto Maltese remains one of the most popular characters from graphic literature in Europe and maintains a devoted cult following among American readers and creators. Originally published in 1967, Corto Maltese: The Ballad of the Salt Sea  introduces our hero for the first time. The story begins with Corto Maltese adrift at sea in the Pacific during World War I. He is picked up by a Russian pirate/privateer named Rasputin. The graphic novel follows Corto and the adventure that ensues.

Corto Maltese: The Ballad of the Salt Sea is sure to appeal to fans of swashbuckling action-packed tales and sophisticated readers seeking elegant stories alike.Hugo Pratt has long been one of the most acclaimed comics creators to emerge from Europe, yet sadly his landmark Corto Maltese stories have been hard to obtain in English, so this new translation is very, very welcome.
