Preview: Hugo Pratt’s ‘Battler Britton’ – More Long-Lost Artwork From The Master

by Richard Bruton

It’s time to see more Hugo Pratt artwork beautifully restored and presented in Battler Britton, the latest in the War Picture Library from the Treasury Of British Comics – take a look at the work of a master…

The Pratt illustrated tales inside here come from two adventures of Battler BrittonWagons of Gold and Rockets of Revenge, plus another long lost story, Destroy the Guns, originally published in a Hurricane annual.
To say they’re a thing of beauty is an obvious understatement – this is Hugo Pratt, one of the masters of comic book art.

Fully restored to greatness, the full glory of Pratt’s incredible lines and composition come through here so well, allowing us to see every last mark made on the page, every beautifully done panel, every stunning page.
I could go on and on and on about the glory of seeing Pratt’s work here… but there’s no better way of telling you how good it is than by showing you just a few examples of how good it is…
