Reviews - What do customers think about Piranese: The Prison Planet?

A rare disappointment from Manara & his collaborators  Jul 2, 2008
A fine draftsman, watercolourist and storyteller, Milo Manara is best known, in the US at least, for his (1) sex comedies, the Click series, Butterscotch, etc. which range from light and breezy to downright raunchy (regardless they are always fun), and (2) illustrated historically-based collaborations with the late Hugo Pratt (creator of "Corto Maltese"), "Indian Summer" and "El Gaucho." and the filmmaker Alejandro Jodoworsky ("Santa Sangre," "El Topo"), "Borgia."

"Piranese: the Prison Planet" falls into neither category: rather "Piranese" represents a disappointingly weak opening chapter in a sci-fi epic, the kind of which is serialized in the US in "Heavy Metal" Magazine (usually beautifully illustrated, though often meandering and often inconclusive). Ensuing chapters might get better, once Manara hits his stride with this particular story, but as far as opening chapters go... this really isn't his best work.

Based on amazing primary sources drawn from Pratt's research into colonial times in the Americas, Manara's collaborations with Hugo Pratt are highly recommended. If you are into 'raunch and roll' comedy, check out "Butterscotch," and the "Click" books. Check those out instead.
