French newspaper Le Figaro has landed the cover of the new Corto Maltese graphic novel.

The creator of Corto Maltese, Hugo Pratt, died twenty years ago. And his marine action adventurer died with him.

Until September.

When his creation is being revived by Spanish creators Juan Díaz Canales and Ruben Pellejero.

The first new graphic novel, Under The Midnight Sun will be released on 30th September with a minimum print run of 300,000 from Casterman

The art is in keeping with Pratt’s famous linework, though Corto’s face is kept mysteriously in shadow. Le Figaro points out though that the familiar figure of the smoking hero will be difficult to run under modern French advertising laws….

All they know is that the comic book will take place in 1915, in the cold, and that it sees the young Corto Maltese with Rasputin in the far North…
