Yeah, I'm on MLP with Katie Cook, and she needed a colorist for Penelope Parker. Can't wait to see what you and Sheldon have in store!

Corto Maltese: Under the Sign of Capricorn
by Hugo Pratt

Finally, Corto Maltese is being translated in English! Despite living in a French province, my grasp of the language is still for shit, so this new edition is just the kind of thing I was looking for.
I was going to do a more substantial review, but shit, I mean, just look at these lines.

Is it that time? A year has passed since the last time I (or anyone reviewed a comic)? Well damn, let's get this shitshow on the road.


TNLU opens with a girl jumping off of a hospital, plagued by voices only she can hear. When she doesn't die, that's where the rest of the story picks up. As it happens, Syd, as she comes to be called, is a not just a crazy person but has extranormal powers (quelle surprise) and falls in with a group of similarly enabled misanthropic youths, all under the auspices of The Voice, a manipulative psychic with a talent for interior decoration.



TNLU is a great read, leading our group of misguided teenage weapons on a journey through San Franciso in order to find out what, exactly, their lives are going to be. Where it explodes is in the art. Simon Gane (inking himself, thankfully) knocks it out of the park and Jordie Bellaire outdoes her usual excellent colors and turns the book into something that looks like nothing else.





This book is my latest piece of evidence against the constant annoying trend in comics- stop drawing people in boring-ass/stupid-ass clothes. Gane knows how to dress the characters in cool, interesting clothes that act as signifiers for the characters' personalities, and seeing it here really points out how many artists work on drawing robots and guns and shit but don't know the first thing about clothing (but just take a look at con photos and I guess it's not surprising, HO HO HO).

You know what's great? The era of Groovy DC. I've been reading the Diana Prince: Wonder Woman stories from 1968 on and they are dope. Long story short, Wonder Woman loses her powers, her people take off and her boyfriend gets shot. So obviously she partners up with a blind martial artist, learns kung-fu, dresses in white and opens a clothing store while travelling the world (and occasionally worlds), getting into tight jams and meeting hunks.


The stories are solid- Diana fights fewer supervillains, her stories more focused in two directions- weird shit with the Amazons, who she visits a couple dimensions over and with whom she occasionally gets into sword-and-sorcery shenanigans, and more real-world adventures, ranging from sexy international espionage to kicking the shit out of hippie slavers.


Or there's witches of course.


Or murderous skiers.


Anyways, yeah. It's very of its time, so there's some cringy race stuff and gender roles and whatnots, but I'm down with white-costume, kung-fu Wonder Woman.
