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.
Iconic anti-hero
Corto Maltese is a modern anti-hero who believes in the infinite potential of man, a risk-taker who is constantly testing the fine line between grand goals and utter recklessness. For Corto, even his spectacular failures expand his spirit, his knowledge, his circle of loyalties.
Re-read Corto to
discover the world
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.
