Corto Maltese, "Corto Marin"

Corto Maltese is a “cult” character of the best of the European graphic novel genre, but also a veritable 20th century literary legend.
He’s a traveler, an ironic sailor who combines Mediterranean looks and character traits with Anglo-Saxon culture.
Corto, which in Spanish means “fast”, was created in 1967 by the great Venetian illustrator
Hugo Pratt.
Corto is an anti-hero who prefers freedom and imagination to wealth.
He’s a modern-day Ulysses who takes us along on his travels to the most fascinating places in the world.
