Dean Mullaney and Rubén Pellejero in Barcelona in June—meeting each other for the first time. Dean and Lorraine Turner met with Rubén, his wife Mercé, and her sister Núria (who graciously translated for everyone—thanks, Núria!). Rubén floored Dean by presenting him with a page of original art from the epic Dieter Lumpen story, “The Reaper’s Price.” Don’t be surprised if you see more of Rubén’s art in EuroComics editions—in addition to the Corto Maltese adventure he’s drawn!
Our much anticipated collection of the complete DIETER LUMPEN by Jorge Zentner and Rubén Pellejero is hitting stores any day. We received our copies today — plus, an advance copy of CORTO MALTESE: THE ETHIOPIAN, which will be in stores next month.
From a rave review of Paracuellos by Barbara Bryce Morris in Public Books:
“Paracuellos, in the original and in Sonya Jones’s skillful translation, claims the authority of the oppressed and gives comics the transformative power of truth telling. Published soon after Franco died, the comic strips brought to the national consciousness an era that had been suppressed in official franquista histories. In retracing the abuses of the period, Paracuellos reveals the tensions around contested versions of history that still occupy political debates in Spain.”
Hugo Pratt’s “Corto Maltese: Beyond the Windy Isles” has been nominated in the “Best American Edition of Foreign Material” category. The awards will be announced at the Baltimore Comic-Con in September.
