In 1923 Buenos Aires, while searching for a missing friend, Corto finds himself locked in a dangerous, yet elegant, game of cat and mouse. His investigation brings him up against an organized crime syndicate known as the "Warsavia," crooked police officials, small-time crooks, investigative journalists, a worldwide prostitution ring, and--manipulating the events from above--the far-reaching arm of the Argentine oligarchy. Guiding his way through this labyrinth of deceit and intrigue is an old acquaintance from a long ago Patagonian escapade: the legendary outlaw Butch Cassidy, who, with the Sundance Kid, headed the notorious Wild Bunch and has been presumed dead for two decades! Just as Fable of Venice was Pratt's homage to his hometown, Tango is a nod to Buenos Aires, where the cartoonist lived during his earliest creative successes in the late 1940s and 1950s. The atmosphere of the story is steeped in the sensual music of the tango, whose melodies almost seem to emerge from the artwork, with close-ups of the dance steps framed by Pratt with extraordinary effectiveness. The first English-language translation of Hugo Pratt's graphic novel set in Argentina.

Oldsmill, the town's head honcho, is a white tiger. Karup, the chief of police, is a white bear. Huk, Karup's henchman, a white fox. Along with the other animals of immaculate pelt, they form the WASP association (W for White, AS for Anglo-Saxon, P for Protestant). All other town residents, from the black magpie to the reddish-brown fox to the tabby cat, are nothing but trash. And if the police aren't able to enforce white law, the wide-reaching arms of the ruthless Arctic Nation party, hooded and decked out in white robes, will soon put things in order. And they've got all the ropes and burning crosses they need. In this unwelcoming environment, Blacksad, a private detective, is investigating the disappearance of a child of color, Kyle. Dinah, Kyle's mother, had a job as Karup's housemaid, and some say she was getting pretty friendly with Oldsmill's son. It doesn't take Blacksad long to get his claws right into the vipers' nest, and he's as quick to lash out as any of them...

Hugo Pratt, hailed as the "inventor of the literary comic strip," offers an provocative story whose protagonist is a seemingly wanton murderer, driven by a religious obsession with the absolute. First English language edition. Set in Canada around 1920 this provocative story deals with complex moral choices. Jesuit Joe, the protagonist, is of French-Canadian and Mohawk origin and is engaged in an obsessive religious search for the absolute, as he moves through the snowy wastelands of the region. He wears the red jacket of the Canadian Mounties that he found in a hut--which gives rise to a series of misunderstandings when he is mistaken for a member of the Canadian Mounted Police. His actions highlight his unusual ethical code and his disturbing and complex personality. He kills with terrible ease and shows an unmatched cruelty and ferocity, yet his mood suddenly shifts and he performs unexpected acts of kindness and compassion. All the while, he is tracked by his nemesis, Sergeant Fox, whose mission is to capture Jesuit Joe and bring him to justice. This is the first English language edition of Pratt's 1980 classic, and includes an incomplete second story of Jesuit Joe, plus Pratt's storyboards drawn for the movie version.

Nominated for both the Eisner and Harvey Awards for Best Foreign Language Publication! With this book Pratt leaves behind the short story form he'd used for twenty-one interrelated tales and presents a truly epic graphic novel. In the aftermath of the Russian Revolution and the First World War, Corto Maltese is engaged by the Red Lanterns-a Chinese secret society made up entirely of women-to find an armored train laden with gold that belonged to the last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II. They aren't the only ones lusting after the treasure. The adventure, which shifts from the hidden courts of Venice to the mysterious alleys of Hong Kong, from Shanghai to Manchuria and Mongolia to Siberia, also attracts regular and irregular armies, as well as revolutionaries and counter-revolutionaries. The sweeping plot allows Pratt to fully investigate the complicated and competing motivations of his cast that includes the return of Rasputin and the introduction of the cold and dangerous Duchess Marina Seminova, the enigmatic warrior/spy named Shanghai-Lil, and historical figures such as the "Mad Baron" Roman Ungern-Sternberg, a Russian general who who sees himself as the modern-day Genghis Khan!
