Dr. Simone Castaldi to Translate Series of Renowned “Corto Maltese” Comics

Simone Castaldi

Every single book in the famous Italian comic series “Corto Maltese” by Hugo Pratt will by reprinted by IDW’s EuroComics imprint, with translation into English by Dr. Simone Castaldi, Associate Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures. For Dr. Castaldi, who grew up reading the series, the project (which will take several years to complete) is a dream come true. Dr. Castaldi is also author of the book Drawn and Dangerous: Italian Comics of the 1970s and 1980s.

The project is the brainchild of Dean Mullaney, editor of EuroComics and the Library of American Comics (LoAC).
