The cover of this particular edition of this great classic is particularly remarkable. The black ink hiding the face of the enigmatic monk invites the reader to accompany Mr. Pratt's characters on the Pacific's seas and islands and yet warns of something mysterious, ominous and thrilling in following Corto Maltese and his friends' drift.

Great drawings and an evoking atmosphere. Unfortunately, the plot is chaotic, the characters are childish and capriciously sketched and the prose is too explicit. Art is saying without saying. ( )
