Rebellion Releases - 17 February 2021


The fourth in a major series of new collections bringing the long lost UK war comics of master artists back to print!

This new collection contains two exciting and explosive war stories lushly illustrated by Hugo Pratt, comics legend and creator of iconic character, Corto Maltese.

In Night of the Devil, take a hallucinatory trip through the oppressive heat of the Burmese jungle along with British soldiers engaged in desperate skirmishes with the enemy. In Bayonet Jungle, Private Jack Green’s presence is seen as an omen of bad luck but he struggles to prove himself to the experienced soldiers of Third Platoon as they fight against the Japanese army that surrounds them.

Presented in a larger format than originally published to better show off Pratt’s incredible artwork, these stunning ‘lost’ stories have never been reprinted and are a real eye-opener to fans of Pratt’s work as they form a missing link in his artistic journey.

This hardcover volume also includes a new introduction to Hugo Pratt’s life and work by comics critic Chloe Maveal.
