Hugo Pratt's Fable of Venice is one of the best albums in the Corto Maltese series. Corto is in Venice (Pratt's birthplace) searching for a precious artifact called 'Solomon's Clavicle.' It's a fast-paced mystery thriller that involves free masons, fascists, poets, occultists and seedy figures from the underworld. It's also a gorgeous love letter to Venice.

The images are kinda big—if you'd prefer to view them in a gallery setting, go here.

Some of you may have heard that Luc Besson has made a movie based on the French comic The Most Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec (Les Aventures Extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec) by Tardi, to be released in France in April (no word yet on a US release date).

Since many probably aren't familiar with Adèle, I thought it might be worth introducing the series in advance of the movie hype. Here, then, are some excerpts from the first album, Adèle & the Beast (Adèle et la Bête, 1976).

This album (as well as the next four in the series) was put out in English by NBM in 1990. It also ran in Dark Horse's Heavy Metal-style magazine Cheval Noir. Fantagraphics is currently publishing some of Tardi's other stories in translation by Kim Thompson, and it's a highly recommended purchase.
