When I want to relax, I read an essay by Engels. When I want to read something serious, I read Corto Maltese.
Umberto Eco

The season hasn't been kind. Shit, 2016 was rather rough from the beginning. My soul has been in slow hemorrhage for over a week and my wife and I turned to Mr. Robot. Then my wife had the flu. Left in a slow drift, I picked up this novel as I did enjoy the compendium that Joel gave me for the Yule.

Titular man of adventure goes to Siberia during the blurred glory of the late

Em que pensas Corto?
Em Artur Rimbaud, um poeta francês ....Neste momento não me sai do pensamento.

Para me afastar um pouco da realidade do Gulag fui tirar este livro à estante. Não saí do mesmo sítio é certo, mas esta aventura de Corto e Rasputine tirou-me, por momentos, do pensamento a Sibéria de Soljenitsin .

Wonderful stuff, as ever, if you like sweeping adventure rooted in historical reality and rich with cultural detail. And I should mention the lovely production job done by Eurocomics. This time the setting is post WWI Russia (& China) in the final throes of the Bolshevik revolution, with armoured trains, an American expeditionary force looking to collect a billion dollars and a varied cast of warlords and adventurers.

The art is sublimely simple, with an economy of line that captures so much

There are some people who really like Corto Maltese. I am not one of those people. I find the aesthetics, in all the comics, a bit dry, the characters unappealing, the story slow and the dialogue stiff.

Nonetheless, this particular adventure is pretty fun and wild, and you learn a lot about history and culture in the course of its exotic story.

Four stars for a book I find somewhat off-putting might seem like an overkill. Sure, call it elitism, but I admire it too much to give it anything less. Th

Δεν υπάρχει άλλη λέξη για να περιγράψει αυτή την ονειρική περιπέτεια πέρα από την "μαγεία". Δράση, διεθνής κατασκοπία, παραμιλιταριστικές οργανώσεις, κινέζικος υπόκοσμος,απομεινάρια του μεγάλου πολέμου, ένας φλεγόμενος Κόρτο με ραγισμένη καρδιά, θάλασσα, βουνό, χιόνι, τραίνα, χρυσός, προδοσία, εσωτερική αναζήτηση, σκιτσάρα. Αυτό το άλμπουμ τα είχε όλα.

Δεν έχω ούτε ένα παράπονο. Ούτε ένα. Και σε σχέση με την back-to-back κριτική μου στην Μπαλάντα της Αλμυρής Θαλάσσης, μου άρεσε πολύ παραπάνω και

I haven`t given too many high ratings to these recent Corto Maltese translations from IDW but I am enjoying this. This one takes place between Hong Hong, Manchuria and eastern Russia and involves cannon trains and lots of intrigue. Taking place around 1920, it is an interesting time for the region with many competing interests in the early days of the Russian Revolution and the end of the Great War. ...more

Una historia de Corto Maltés que me ha enamorado. Tiene la mezcla perfecta de elementos que me tocan la fibra: la búsqueda de un tesoro, sociedades secretas, malos de pura cepa y aventura pura (bueno, eso es la esencia de Hugo Pratt y de este personaje).
Por favor, leedlo, o releedlo como ha sido el caso para reencontrarse con las sensaciones de antaño. No es nostalgia barata, es volver a encontrarse con ese espíritu aventurero que tanto cuesta encontrar ahora.

So far, this is my favorite of the Corto Maltese adventures. However, I cannot give it five stars due to the awkward translation, and poor lettering.

Korto ko Korto - standardno dobar, a prevod Vuleta Žurića je odličan.
Sérgio Rodrigues
Corto Maltese e o seu amigo Rasputin contam com a ajuda das Lanternas Vermelhas, numa aventura cheia de mistério e acção histórica e geográfica.
Arqui Himself
Buena historia que comienza en Hong Kong en 1918 y pronto encuentra a Corto envuelto en las disputas y conspiraciones de la época entre Japón, China y Rusia.
No faltan los personajes históricos, sociedades secretas, Rasputín y algún que otro amor perdido. Tal vez un tanto entreverada, pero con acción y aventuras que nunca paran.
El dibujo de Pratt como siempre alcanza un alto nivel.

- Corto Maltés... su cara me resulta familiar, ¡creo haberla visto en otra parte!
- Imposible general, mi cara nunca ha cambiado de sitio. ¡Siempre la he llevado conmigo!

Corto Maltés és fantàstic.

Non-stop action in this book of the series. Corto travels across Manchuria with Rasputin with a challenging task of robbing a train with gold. In the way he meets many people and gets himself into strange adventures. Worth reading.

Superbe histoire qui mêle aventure, romantisme, amitié, poésie et histoire. Un chef d'oeuvre. Corto Maltese toujours là mais jamais le sujet principal du récit nous fait vivre les années de chaos en Asie après la révolution russe et l'instabilité en Chine. A lire et relire.
A reread inspired by a conversation husband and I had about Baron von Ungern-Sternberg recently, and the pretty color volume that was published in Finland only last year.

This was exactly what I want out of a, slightly amoral adventure. These are getting a reprint and I intend to pick some of them up.

Elsker normalt Corto Maltese, men synes denne her er lang som vinteren i Sibirien og en lidt rodet affære.
