Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dark Horse continues to bring the works of Italian comics master Milo Manara to American audiences with Volume 2 of The Milo Manara Library This deluxe hardcover, newly translated by Eurocomics expert Kim Thompson, features the sweeping historical epic El Gaucho, the second of Manara''s storied collaborations with his mentor Hugo Pratt, author of the internationally acclaimed Corto Maltese. Rounding out this volume is Trial by Jury, a series of shorts, never before published in the US, in which some of history''s most notorious figures undergo a mock trial. The Manara Library offers English-language readers a chance to experience the illustrative storytelling of a true comics master.

Review:

"The latest volume of the works of Italian master artist Manara, newly translated, collects a long work of historical fiction alongside nine short biographical works. The standout piece is 'El Gaucho,' with art by Manara and a script by Hugo Pratt (Corto Maltese). Set in the 19th century, it follows the lives of several people arriving in Argentina on the eve of a British attack, including British soldier Tom Browne, prostitute Molly Malone, and hunchbacked shipmate Matthew. All have their own reasons for seeking to break free of the people controlling them and try to use the chaos of the outbreak of war to slip away. But in each case their desire to help others leads to tragedy. Also included, Manara's Trial by Jury series, in which noted historical figures from to Nero and Helen of Troy to Custer and Oppenheimer are put on hypothetical trials for their crimes, presented in biographical flashbacks. 'El Gaucho' is beautifully drawn and colored, full of the sensuality Manara is known for, but not overwhelmed by it. The Trial by Jury stories, rather text heavy, take a more serious, chaste tone, but still are gorgeous to look at." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
