Did you know?


The name Corto Maltese appears in Frank Miller's graphic novel Batman: The Dark Knight Returns as the name of an island at the center of an incident not unlike the Cuban missile crisis. The choice of name is apparently an inside joke as Miller has stated he is a great admirer of Pratt's work. The island has been occasionally referenced in other DC Comics since. In the 1989 Batman movie, Corto Maltese was referenced as the location of a violent uprising where Vicki Vale had been working as a photojournalist.

Mais bien classe et bien dans l'esprit.

T'a raison Jo, il me fait d'ailleur penser au méchant de Ninja Scroll.

Alors je t'en ai fait un autre, version gentil, juste pour toi. ;)
