- Full Description
The enthralling historical epic El Gaucho, the second of Manara’s storied collaborations with his mentor Hugo Pratt. Plus a whole series of Trial by Jury, captivating shorts in which some of history’s most notorious figures undergo a mock trial, from Helen of Troy to Oppenheimer to Nero to Attila the Hun! As a Manara fan, I've never before seen any of these.These make up half of this thick, almost 300-page collection.
El Gaucho is a unique tale of adventure in South America, with beautful, lusty women and heroic as well as sleazy figures, as soldiers and settlers interact in the wilderness of the pampas. This a long story and entirely in color.
Trial by Jury is a very interesting series, creating a mock trail with both prosecutor and defense making the cases for and against a bevy of history's most famous but also most controversial figures. It's in black and white, but it's highly detailed and very interesting, obviously from early in his career before he adopted his more trademark and less detailed style. Each one is about 14 pages.
