The First Page Of The New Corto Maltese Comic Begins In English…

cortoThis is the first page of the new Corto Maltese comic book, the first to be published after creator Hugo Pratt‘s death, published in the French newspaper Le Figaro.

Hugo Pratt was very influenced by English language writers, and an appreciation of that is maintained from the very first panel, it seems.

Written by Juan Diaz Canales of Blacksad  and drawn by Rubén Pellejero of Dieter Lumpen, Under The Midnight Sun will be published at the end of September and the beginning of October, across Europe.
