OUT NOW: Battler Britton by Hugo Pratt
23rd June 2021
The latest War Picture Library collection featuring the work of master artist Hugo Pratt – the Battler Britton collection is available to buy in print now!
Delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic last year, this is the second book in the series of collections reprinting every story drawn by Hugo Pratt, the Italian art maestro meets one of the most popular British comic book characters: Battler Britton!
Battler Britton is a World War Two air ace as skilled a fighter on land as he is in his Spitfire. In 1960, Hugo Pratt drew two of his adventures – ‘Wagons of Gold’ and ‘Rockets of Revenge’ – and they are being reprinted in graphic novel format for the first time.
These fast-paced adventure stories feature the classic character facing off against the Nazis and this second book continues Rebellion’s mission to bring all of Pratt’s work back into print.
Readers of Corto Maltese will love these forgotten classic war stories from the world renowned comic book artist, published in a format larger than originally published to show off his impressive and universally-lauded artwork.
