If you can find any of Pratt's work in English - do yourself a favor, and pick it up! (or tell me where I can find it!)

Colección Clarín-Ñ Corto Maltés #13. Último tomo. Edición a color, formato reducido.
Historia repetida en la edición grande de Norma (que venía con una agendita de regalo) y en el Corto Maltés Biblioteca Clarín de la Historieta 2.

Si cuento el capítulo en blanco y negro creo que sumo tres ediciones de este libro que tengo: aquella, esta del coleccionable Clarín/Ñ y la española en tapa blanda, que me salió una ganga para la edición que es y me vino con una agendita de 1999 de regalo :o

Der er to måner og alt for mange hemmeligheder og intriger i Patagonien, men vor helt klarer endnu engang skærene (og får danset tango med pomadehår).
Katja Vartiainen
This is one of my favorites, brings the music to my head. sensual, and pure enjoyment of talent.
Variaciones Enrojo
Tomo con la clásica historieta del Corto Maltés en Argentina.
