Corto MalteseLe Celtiche (E–Livre)


Corto travels through war torn Europe at the end of WWI Unforgettable raphics and dialogues in this adventure which also is a memoriam the horrors of war The action moves from the Caribbean to the battlefields of the horrors of war The action moves from the Caribbean to the battlefields of but the style remains the same mixing fantastical digressions with pseudo historical events for a fine bit of entertainment that increasingly taunts me to learn French so that I can The Lives of Stay-at-Home Fathers: Masculinity, Carework and Fatherhood in the United States get the full flavor of text which plainly suffers in translation Morereat Corto Maltese here as our intrepid hero finds himself in Venice the waning days of World War I and in Ireland and Brittany during the Irish rebellion These stories are masterful works of comics fiction and one story draws up the ancient Arthurian legends to help keep the Germans out of Cornwall Very inventive It was nice to see Pratt s fictionalized Ernest Hemingway and Aristotle Onassis although Onassis was still pretty young in real life compared to the character here Still lots of fun to read and Pratt s art is magnificent as always Hugo Pratt has long been my favorite creator in the world and his Corto Maltese work is my favorite of all his worksthough I should take this moment to ently chide you effin BASTARDS English publishers over how little of his work has seen print in the only language I speak or read The Corto Maltese material for me is evocative of just the type of dreamy adventure that I wish my life had been filled with I wish I could live in a world of Pratt s women It would be worth the occasional bullet wound And Corto himself is one of the reat characters in fiction deeply rich without being overly complex Determined to fight to his last breath but if he loses it s only life ehAhhhI love this stuff so much that I can even explain my attraction to the material The best I can say is that it feels Another tight collection of short I can say is that it feels Another tight collection of short but the red yellow blue and reen motif from the previous volume makes its slow subtle reappearance One of the best in the series Recommended The maps behind Corto s face on the covers normally suggest exotic adventure somewhat less so when the first place name to catch your eye is Croydon But yes after a stop in Venice this volume largely finds the wry roguish sailor in Europe s north west whether that be the trenches of France or the British Isles Concerto in O Minor for Harp and Nitroglycerine has an amazing title but then the beautif. Πρόκειται για την ασπρόμαυρη επανέκδοση του Κέλτικα το οποίο είχε κυκλοφορήσει και παλιότερα 1999 αλλά σε έγχρωμη μορφή τότε Εκτός από τη βασική αυτή διαφορά υπάρχουν και μερικές ακόμα μικρότερο μέγεθος το καινούργιο κάποιες μικροαλλαγές στο οπισθόφυλλο ενώ εδώ έχει προστεθεί και ένα 3σέλιδο με εξτραδάκια που περιέχει Corto MalteseLe CelticheS character of fighter pilots without citing a political manifesto Pratt also blends in some stranger along the lines of occult like creatures or fairy tales of sorts Corto Maltese is a uniue character and the overall feel is hard to pin down the historical parts reminded me of Indiana Jones and the stranger supernatural parts reminded me of Hellblazer but not too much If you are looking for the stranger supernatural parts reminded me of Hellblazer but not too much If you are looking for action stories maybe skip this but if you like action adventure stories that have no problem etting weird yet sentimental with some subtle political consciousness then check this outNote 2016 edition says its Vol 5 on the back and not 4 as listed in the description here Great titles for the stories that make up this collection including The Angel in the Window to the Orient A Mid Winter Morning s Dream and Cotes de Nuits and Piccardy Roses which capture some of the romance of Corto s adventures As ever there s a mixture from the bullets and bombs of the Western Front and post Easter Rising Ireland to the mysticism and myth of Stonehenge and Tintagel Corto s role is varied often much less central to the storyline than in the stories in previous collections though his motivation as a freedom fighter is explicit in this volume than previously Also obvious than before is the extent to which stories are not self contained but have references back to previous stories or foreshadowing of those to come Multiple stories here have references to the legendary figure of Merlin and there are reappearances in the opening story and the two closing stories of characters who featured in previous volumes including the Ballad of the Salty Sea The richness of the storytelling includes mostly low key appearancesreferences to historical figures including Manfred von Richthofen the Red Baron DH Lawrence Shakespeare Baron de Rothschild of Bordeaux wine fame and fictionalized versions of Ernest Hemingway and Aristotle Onassis With one exception they play minor roles woven into the stories backgrounds alongside the other historical details waiting to be found by the reader A much prominent role is played by the fairy cast of Shakespeare s A Midsummer Night s Dream tieing Oberon and Puck etc in nicely with the Arthur and Merlin myths I wonder whether it was inspiration for Neil Gaiman s World Fantasy Award winning Sandman story of the same name 5 in the series published by Eurocomics.

Ul Irish revolutionary Banshee O Danaan arrives and one suspects it s a name even Chris Claremont might have rejected as a bit heavy on the national stereotypes Still what seems at first like a horribly black and white take on the Irish uestion turns out to have a suitably bittersweet sting concealed Corto white take on the Irish uestion turns out to have a suitably bittersweet sting concealed Corto his creator may both have a natural inclination towards anything which can be painted as a struggle for liberation but they also know that even the noblest cause makes for deceit and ignoble death along the way And makes for deceit and ignoble death along the way And there s A Midwinter Morning s Dream with Oberon and Merlin obliged to use Corto as a makeshift Arthur in a desperate echo of the Matter of Britain It s the closest I ve seen the series come to outright fantasy yet somehow it fits in this world of adventure and nautical tall tales if lost treasure and strange tribal rites then why not lost kings and little folk This also has been one of the dark places of the Earth First of all you should know before hunting this down that it doesn t have any new material that wasn t already in previous volumes notably A Midwinter Morning s Dream My version at least is slightly larger however which allows for a detailed appreciation of the beautiful artworkFor those who don t know Hugo Pratt s Corto Maltese it was a seminal Italian comic strip from the 60s and 70s chronicling the adventures of the eponymous anti hero a romantic soldier of fortune with a sympathy for the underdog The stories take place during before and after World War I The artwork and storytelling are spellbinding and the story blends real historical events and characters with fantastical elements in one story here Corto helps Merlin and Oberon save Britain from the Germans Pratt s own adventurous life ends an air of authenticity to these talesCorto has a wide ends an air of authenticity to these talesCorto has a wide in Italy and France but the English speaking world never caught onto this series as much so finding this book in English is extremely difficult to do Good luck It s worth it if you can et it Hugo Pratt s Corto Maltese Celtic Tales is an absolutely amazing collection of historically based action adventure stories that occur during WWI and throughout Europe Pratt is known for doing extensive research before writing the historically based stories and those details add a lot of depth to the stories I particularly like the encounter with the Red Baron that was able to depict the clas. ?να ενδιαφέρον κείμενο του Π Κουτρουλάρη και μερικές ιστορικές φωτογραφίες Η κυκλοφορία του από την Μαμούθ τοποθετείται κάπου μέσα στον Απρίλιο του 2014 Οι σελίδες μαζί με τα εξώφυλλα φτάνουν τις 144Οι έξι ιστορίες που εμφανίζονται κατά σειρά μέσα στο άλμπουμ είναι οι παρακάτω 1 Ο ΑΓΓΕΛΟΣ ΣΤΟ ΠΑΡΑΘΥΡΟ ΤΗΣ ΑΝΑΤΟΛΗΣ2 ΚΑΤΩ ΑΠΟ.
