    1. The maps behind Corto's face on the covers normally suggest exotic adventure; somewhat less so when the first place-name to catch your eye is Croydon. But yes, after a stop in Venice, this volume largely finds the wry, roguish sailor in Europe's north-west, whether that be the trenches of France or the British Isles. 'Concerto in O Minor for Harp and Nitroglycerine' has an amazing title, but then the beautiful Irish revolutionary Banshee O'Danaan arrives, and one suspects it's a name even Chris [...]

    2. More great Corto Maltese here, as our intrepid hero finds himself in Venice in the waning days of World War I and in Ireland and Brittany during the Irish rebellion. These stories are masterful works of comics fiction, and one story draws up the ancient Arthurian legends to help keep the Germans out of Cornwall. Very inventive! It was nice to see Pratt's fictionalized Ernest Hemingway and Aristotle Onassis, although Onassis was still pretty young in real life, compared to the character here. Sti [...]

    3. First of all, you should know before hunting this down that it doesn't have any new material that wasn't already in previous volumes, notably "A Midwinter Morning's Dream." My version, at least, is slightly larger, however, which allows for a more detailed appreciation of the beautiful artwork.For those who don't know Hugo Pratt's Corto Maltese, it was a seminal Italian comic strip from the '60s and '70s chronicling the adventures of the eponymous anti-hero, a romantic soldier of fortune with a [...]

    4. Μόλις τελείωσα το "μεγαθήριο" των έξι ιστοριών των Κέλτικων. Η συλλογή είναι απλά εξαιρετική. Αψεγάδιαστη. Μια άψογη μείξη φαντασιακού-ρεαλιστικού. Δεν νομίζω να υπάρχει άλλος που να καταφέρνει να δέσει τόσο ομαλά τραγικά και σκληρά συμβάντα του πρώτου παγκοσμίου που κάλλι [...]

    5. Another tight collection of short pieces but the red, yellow, blue, and green motif from the previous volume makes its slow, subtle reappearance.

    6. Je suis une très grande fan d’Hugo Pratt et surtout de son héro Corto Maltese. Pendant mes études, j’ai lu et relu beaucoup de ses aventures mais j’en avais oubliées certaines, dont les Celtiques. Cet ouvrage regroupe quatre histoires en rapport avec le celtisme, évidemment, mais toutes ne se déroulent pas en Irlande. Après une si longue pause, j’ai retrouvé Corto avec un peu d’appréhension (cela faisait plusieurs années que je n’avais pas lu de Corto Maltese car à l’ép [...]

    7. Great titles for the stories that make up this collection, including "The Angel in the Window to the Orient", "A Mid-Winter Morning's Dream" and "Cotes de Nuits and Piccardy Roses" which capture some of the romance of Corto's adventures. As ever, there's a mixture; from the bullets and bombs of the Western Front and post Easter Rising Ireland to the mysticism and myth of Stonehenge and Tintagel. Corto's role is varied - often much less central to the storyline than in the stories in previous col [...]

    8. Hugo Pratt has long been my favorite creator in the world, and his Corto Maltese work is my favorite of all his worksough I should take this moment to gently chide (you effin' BASTARDS!!!) English publishers over how little of his work has seen print in the only language I speak or read. The Corto Maltese material, for me, is evocative of just the type of dreamy adventure that I wish my life had been filled with. I wish I could live in a world of Pratt's women. It would be worth the occasional b [...]

    9. Reseña: fabulantes/2014/07/las"El comienzo de la Gran Guerra pilla a Corto Maltés, felizmente, en las Antillas. Son sus años al servicio de El Monje, en los que estará acompañado por Rasputín, Pandora y Caín Groovesnore (La Balada del Mar Salado, de 1967). Aún de manera tangencial -con Bocadorada haciendo de agente británico en la lucha contra los alemanes- la Guerra aparecerá también en los álbumes que conforman el primer ciclo de aventuras sudamericano del Maltés (Bajo el Signo de [...]

    10. Simply beautiful!Perfect edition of my favorite Corto stories. Time of the First World War - biplanes, triplanes, spies, and then Merlin and Stonehenge and submarines and Ireland and IRA and Venice and El Dorado and femmes fatales and Corto completely dreamlike. Proto-Gaiman (American Gods) only much, much better.

    11. What I learned from this book is that Hugo Pratt has an almost miraculous brush technique. Corto Maltese is just an adventure serial, but the skill involved is humbling.

    12. Corto gets better with each instalment. Celtic Tales has a nice division among chapters, making for (roughly) standalone stories. I'm going to be very sad when this is all over.

    13. "Chi sogna ad occhi aperti è pericoloso perchè non sa quando finisce il sogno".(Sogno di un mattino di mezzo inverno)
