Corto maltese – Celtic tales

Available from Settember, 2018

“CAREER HEROES LEAVE ME TOTALLY INDIFFERENT.”

– Corto Maltese

The six stories in Celtic Tales 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.

On the advice of a missionary, Corto heads for Venice, for that is where the clues leading to Eldorado are hidden. But in this series of European adventures, while wandering through France, Italy, Great Britain, and Ireland, Corto will find nothing but the horrors of World War I.

Horrors mitigated by a journey amidst the magic atmosphere of Stonehenge; by the seductive voice of an actress; and by the reappearance of an old friend who, like a memory, resurfaces from that salty sea where everything began.

In this third volume in the definitive English language edition of Hugo Pratt’s masterpiece, the action moves from South America to Europe against the backdrop of the First World War. In these six stories Pratt further explores such complicated themes as patriotism and greed, revolution and opportunism, and betrayal and seduction.
