Man of the World

Corto Maltese
28 mm




I won this figure a few months ago from North Star figures in a (very unexpected) random draw at Lead Adventure forum.  This Mark Copplestone sculpt is an homage to the 1970s Italian comic book hero Corto Maltese, a sort of Han-Solo-like roving ship's captain and adventurer who meets exotic people, defends the underdog and generally champions liberty and fairness wherever he goes.  I'll confess I wasn't familiar with the books, but I should be; the art is stunning:
