His sympathies lies in general with the Argentine side and against British imperial ambitions. The main actor is a drummer boy betrayed by his commanders and later caught prisoner on the shore.
Milo Manara | The Official Website | El Gaucho
Disillusioned with his own fl, he decides to remain in the new country and becomes the Gaucho from the title. With Milo Manara in charge of the graphics there is of course a lot of explicit sex and nudity definitely aimed at an adult audiencebut also very well drawn characters and clear line backgrounds. He is better though at drawing janara bodies, preferably unclothed, than at male expressions or action scenes. The story angle of the Irish prostitutes that accompanied the expedition is probably also introduced by Manara.
At about pages, the story is sometimes rushed but complex enough to hold my interest, enough to make me look up on wikipedia the period and the conflict. Hugo Pratt is in my opinion the greatest comic book creator of all time. Milo Manara is one of the best artists.
They were great friends, and often collaborated, usually quite successfully. This really isn’t one of those successful times. Pratt’s story is moving and complex, manar Manara’s art is lively and energetic, but the two pgatt quite mesh. Manara’s art doesn’t truly have the range that was needed for the story So, while story and art in this graphic novel are both quite accomplished, they remain separate.
Jul 04, Michael Peters rated it really liked it. Jun 29, Danijel rated it it was ok Shelves: El Gaucho, our last quest for freedom.
Time and place exactly determined; it’s yearwhen British invasions of the River Plate took place. The story is told from eel perspective of a year old soldier Tom Browne.
He remembers the invasion very well; he and his accidental comrades had a tragic adventure during the Invasion. British sailors Clagg and Matthew, Irish prostitute Molly Malone, various black slaves and aristocra El Gaucho, our last quest for freedom. British sailors Clagg and Matthew, Irish prostitute Molly Malone, various black slaves and aristocratic girl Aureliana. Main story are the leading events to liberation of the Spanish-American Colonies, as Pratt would said, the fight between great mason lodges.
Behind these huge historical events, we are witnessing the brief and futile search of a small people for freedom. They are defenseless against the true masters of destiny, but small people regularly deceive themselves with some illusion of freedom. Pratt guides us trough ordinary life of colorful and morally ambiguous characters during the war times, various castes, and ethnical groups of colonists, slaves and soldiers.
Manara draws his girls very provocative, as usual. They will certainly make you cock hard! Passion, obscenity, nudeness, cruelty, sense of hopelessness during the wartime — it’s all there. The price of freedom is always high; many of characters see that in the end. Because this is the picture of real life, there are no Hollywood happy endings. Like ” Indian summer ” from same authors, it has a tragic and bitter end. Another great story told by the eyes of both Pratt and Manara.
The book is spicy enough Milo Manara style and you can tell by the way the narrative goes that this book in Pratt’s work.
The drawings are amazing, full of detail and you will read the whole pages as fast as a blink of an eye. Sen verta vahvaa historiaan sidottua ja oikeita asioita oli mukaan lorahtanut.
