Image: Corto Maltese: Ballad of the Salty Sea GN  - IDW Publishing

Celebrate this milestone in the history of graphic novels, winner of the world's first-ever Best Graphic Novel award, taking the prize in 1976 at the Angoulême Fesitval. Originally serialized beginning in 1967, this book is universally acknowledged as Hugo Pratt's masterpiece, in which he introduces Corto Maltese to the world. Corto is but one of a strong ensemble cast of characters whose lives permeate the entire 12-book series. It is here that we also meet the young and beautiful Pandora, her brother Cain, the mysterious criminal mastermind Monk, the grim and ferocious Rasputin, Lieutenant Slutter of the German Navy, and the natives Skull and Tarao. The Ballad of the Salty Sea is also hailed as the first example of the literary comic strip. Pratt was inspired by Conrad, Stevenson, and London, but even more directly by Henry de Vere Stacpool's Blue Lagoon, from which the author got the idea of a small island in the Pacific which he named Escondida.

Image: Corto Maltese: Fable of Venice SC  - IDW Publishing

In this affectionate tribute to his hometown, Hugo Pratt offers a complex mystery thriller involving Freemasons, occultists, and esotericists set during the rise of Fascism in 1921. Corto Maltese's return to Venice is ostensibly a search for an emerald known as the Clavicle of Solomon, but by the end he is left questioning whether the object of his quest will open the hidden doors of magic and unravel the nature of time and space in this city of secrets or if it's merely the stuff that dreams are made of, as was the black bird of Dashiell Hammett's novel featuring another Maltese.

Image: Corto Maltese: In Siberia SC  - IDW Publishing

With this book Hugo Pratt leaves behind the short story form he'd used for 21 interrelated tales and presents a truly epic graphic novel. In the aftermath of the Russian Revolution and the First World War, Corto Maltese is engaged by the Red Lanterns-a Chinese secret society made up entirely of women-to find an armored train laden with gold that belonged to the last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II. They aren't the only ones lusting after the treasure. The adventure, which shifts from the hidden courts of Venice to the mysterious alleys of Hong Kong, from Shanghai to Manchuria and Mongolia to Siberia, also attracts regular and irregular armies, as well as revolutionaries and counter-revolutionaries. ? Nominated for both the Eisner and Harvey Awards for Best Foreign Language Publication!

Corto Maltese: Tango SC
(IDW Publishing)

In 1923 Buenos Aires, while searching for a missing friend, Corto finds himself locked in a dangerous, yet elegant, game of cat and mouse. Before long, his investigation brings him up against an organized crime syndicate known as the Warsavia and their underworld network. Just as Fable of Venice was Pratt's homage to his hometown, Tango is a nod to Buenos Aires, where the cartoonist lived during his earliest creative successes in the late 1940s and 1950s. The atmosphere of the story is steeped in the sensual music of the tango, whose melodies almost seem to emerge from the artwork, with close-ups of the dance steps framed by Pratt with extraordinary effectiveness. The first English-language translation of Hugo Pratt's graphic novel set in Argentina.

Image: Corto Maltese: The Early Years SC  - IDW Publishing

Advance solicited for August. This short adventure tells the backstory of Corto Maltese first meeting Rasputin at the end of the Russo-Japanese War in 1905. The protagonist of this tale is not the 18-year-old Corto but Rasputin, a deserter from a Siberian rifle regiment, and the writer Jack London, who was a war correspondent in the region at that time. London is already friends with Corto and introduces the sailor to the unpredictable Russian, who even as a young man kills with disconcerting ease and is ready to lie and betray without hesitation. It is, however, the beginning of a beautiful friendship that continues throughout the series. As a bonus, the book includes additional material that sets up the entire series, as well as several never-before published pages that Pratt intended for a continuation of the tale, in which Corto and Rasputin were to embark on a search for King Solomon's mines.

Image: Corto Maltese: The Ethiopian SC  - IDW Publishing

When Corto Maltese arrives in the Middle East and Africa in 1918 the shifting sands and loyalties reveal colonial powers still battling for domination over each other and the indigenous people. The desert of Yemen, controlled by the fading Ottoman Empire, is the setting for In the Name of Allah, the Merciful and Compassionate, where Corto meets Cush, the Danikil warrior with whom he establishes a close yet conflicted relationship. In The Coup de Grace the stubborn racism of an English commander of a small fort in British Somaliland leads to conflict with Cush and the Dervish army of Sayyid Mohamed, whom the British call The Mad Mullah. The action moves to Ethiopia amidst inter-tribal conflict in and of Other Romeos and Other Juliets, as Cush introduces Corto to the mysterious and powerful shaman Shamael, who hears the voices of the dead and of devils. German East Africa is the background of The Leopard-Men of the Rufiji, where Corto is engulfed in a dreamlike atmosphere that reveals how African justice operates outside the constraints of white law. Translation by Dean Mullaney and Simone Castaldi.

Image: Corto Maltese: The Golden House of Samarkand SC  - IDW Publishing

Corto Maltese sets out on another globetrotting adventure after the discovery of a Byron manuscript in a mosque on the Isle of Rhodes. Set in the years 1921-22, the action soon shifts to Turkey, Azerbaijan, and the Caspian Sea, following the footsteps of the legendary Silk Road, as Corto Maltese searches for the fabled treasure of Alexander the Great. A parade of fascinating characters are introduced, including the Whirling Dervishes, Joseph Stalin (with whom Corto is on a first-name basis), the Hashinin sect of assassins, the Turkish general Enver Pasha, and the return of Venexiana Stevenson and Rasputin (who has just escaped from the dreaded prison known as The Golden House of Samarkand.)

Image: Corto Maltese: Under the Sign of Capricorn SC  - IDW Publishing

This book, the first of 12 volumes, launches the definitive English language edition of Hugo Pratt's masterpiece, presented in the original oversized B&W format with new translations made from Pratt's original Italian scripts. Long before the term graphic novel entered the popular lexicon-ten years before Will Eisner's A Contract with God-Hugo Pratt pioneered the long-form drawn literature story. Corto Maltese set the standard for all adult adventure comics in Europe. By the mid-1970s Corto was the continent's most popular series and Hugo Pratt the world's leading graphic novelist. Hugo Pratt's peripatetic sailor was featured in a series of 29 stories. The adventures of this modern Ulysses are set during the first 30 years of the 20th Century in such exotic locales as Pratt's native Venice, the steppes of Manchuria, the Caribbean islands, the Danakil deserts, the Amazon forests, and the waves of the Pacific. Corto Maltese: Under the Sign of Capricorn collects the first six inter-connected short stories Pratt created in France in the early 1970s: The Secret of Tristan Bantam, Rendez-vous in Bahia, Sureshot Samba, The Brazilian Eagle, So Much for Gentlemen of Fortune, and The Seagull's Fault.

Image: Man from the Great North HC  - IDW Publishing

A provocative story whose protagonist is a seemingly wanton murderer driven by a religious obsession with the absolute. Set in Canada around 1920, Jesuit Joe is of French-Canadian and Mohawk origin and is engaged in an obsessive religious search for the absolute, as he moves through the snowy wastelands of the region. He wears the red jacket of the Canadian Mounted Police that he found in a hut-which gives rise to a series of misunderstandings when he is mistaken for a member of the force. His actions highlight his unusual ethical code and his disturbing and complex personality-he kills with terrible ease and shows an unmatched cruelty and ferocity, yet his mood suddenly shifts and he performs unexpected acts of kindness and compassion. All the while, he is tracked by his nemesis, Sergeant Fox, whose mission is to capture Jesuit Joe and bring him to justice. This is the first English language edition of Pratt's 1980 classic, and includes an incomplete second story of Jesuit Joe, plus Pratt's storyboards drawn for the movie version.
