The story of Hugo Pratt is that of an adventurer! From a young age, the grand History came to disrupt his personal existence, as he was a soldier at 13, a prisoner at 15, and an tireless traveler throughout his life. To try to narrate all this, he invented a silent hero, a sailor by trade, who from Rasputin to Abyssinia defends the widow and the orphan: Corto Maltese; and with him, it's also the invention of literary comics that he put in place!
