This week, on the Major Spoilers Podcast, the crew takes a look at the second volume of the Eurocomic, The Manara Library.
Dark Horse continues to bring the works of Italian comics master Milo Manara to American audiences with Volume 2 of The Milo Manara Library! This deluxe hardcover, newly translated by Eurocomics expert Kim Thompson, features the 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. The Manara Library offers English-language readers a chance to experience the illustrative storytelling of a true comics master.
