Graphic novel. 2nd edition
  stevholt | Nov 19, 2017 |
The first sixty six panels of this story, where no word is spoken – and no word need be – is one of the most breathtaking sequences Manara has ever produced. Just by looking at the graphics, one can almost hear the roar of the surf and the screech of the gulls drowning the scream of the raped girl. There are a few more of this nature in this 151pp edition although non with the poignancy of this opening sequence.

This is one of the most successful collaborations Manara has had with Hugo Pratt, telling the more or less accurate story of early Puritan settlers struggle for survival in the Americas. Individual emotions, without narrative help, are superbly illustrated by Manara, while the narrative has historical accuracy dyed deeply.

This is a sad story, one small episode amongst many such conflicts in those early colonial days, born of human foibles and misunderstanding (on both sides) that ends in tragedy.

A brilliant rendition of an unfortunate human condition presented in graphic novel format, providing both entertainment and insight. ( )
