Corto Maltese is a traveller without destination, both restless and mysterious. He is the famous character created by Hugo Pratt, the undisputed master of Italian comics.
The first story featuring Corto Maltese was published in 1967. The story is reminiscent of the great adventure novels, that have been so successful and so famous among generations of readers. Corto’s wandering style opens unexpected horizons to those of us who are in touch with our “inner traveller”.
These comics work as an introduction, as a spark that ignites a search for a path that we all create for ourselves, with our own experiences, dreams and hopes.
