Dear Friends worldwide,
I have been reading about Corto Maltese online although I have not yet actually read any of the comics. I am excited to do so, but for some reason they are very expensive in the U.S. Anyway, I wanted to join the group in part to meet people around the world with similar interests. Has anyone read ADVENTURES OF A RED SEA SMUGGLER by Henry de Monfreid? or the novels of B. Traven? They seem similar to Corto Maltese.
I am also interested in travel, the occult, poetry, small press publication, and pulp fiction. I have written a novella about an occult detective named Ravenwood which will be published by Wild Cat Books in a few months. I am interested in writing about some sort of sea adventurer like my impression of Corto Maltese. Again, I have yet to read the comics!
Does anyone know an inexpensive source for the comics, especially in English? Or would anyone be willing to xerox me copies? I could send $ for copying if necessary and/or postage.
I am happy to be joining the group!

I recently watched some of the animated adaptations of Corto Maltese and made 5 icons (but I hope to make more of them ^^).» Teasers:

Hello all, I was happy to notice that somebody had finally set up a CM community, and here I am.
I'm Finnish, nearly 30, and have read Corto Maltese voraciously for fifteen years or so - ever since some blessed friend pointed me to Ballad of the Salt Sea
. I don't know any French, but my Italian is fairly decent and I own & have read all the stories in that language. I find it interesting to compare how CM is written in different languages. I also bought some CM animations on DVD while I was staying in Italy, but I'm not terribly enthusiastic about them. (The feature animation
made by the same people I haven't seen yet.)
I love pretty much all the stories - Ballad
, A Mid-winter Morning's Dream
and The Secret Rose
best perhaps, but the stories are all so different and intriguing. And that drawing with seagulls on the user info page of this community is my absolute favorite Corto Maltese drawing :-).
My name is Anna and I come from a country far far away which might be known to somebody as Russia :)
I have first read Corto Maltese on my french lessons and I absolutely adore it!
Oh well that's it ^_^
PS: I have only 3 books of Corto in French: "La ballade de la mer salee", "Corto Maltese la Jeunesse" and "La lagune des mysteres" but I am willing to scan and share them with you
