CORTO MALTESE SERIES
IN WORKS FROM STUDIOCANAL AND FRANK MILLER
|I first reported on this project back in 2021|
The lavishly drawn adventure tale melded fantasy with reality following Corto Maltese, an enigmatic and laconic sea captain who lives in the first three decades of the 20th century. Born in Valletta on the island of Malta, the son of a sailor from Cornwall, and a gypsy from Seville, in his adventures full of real world references, he has often crossed with real historical characters like Jack London, Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Hermann Hesse, the American outlaw Butch Cassidy, the German World War I flying ace Red Baron, and many others.
