Dark Horse Comics has been collecting works by Milo Manara, with the first volume selling out at the distributor level. The company will publish volume 2 of The Milo Manara Library in February and sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek.
This deluxe hardcover features the newly translated, sweeping historical epic El Gaucho, the second of Manara’s storied collaborations with his mentor Hugo Pratt, author of the internationally acclaimed Corto Maltese. Rounding out this volume is Trial by Jury, a series of shorts, never before published in the US, in which some of history’s most notorious figures undergo a mock trial.
This is the first and only comprehensive English collection of Manara’s work, so head to your local comic retailer and pick up a copy before the first printing is gone for good!
