I am ridiculously excited by this news. I treasure my two NBM Corto Maltese volumes, and issue of Totem with a Hugo Pratt feature, and my Comics Journal with a Pratt interview and story. My color edition of the recent “The Ballad of the Salt Sea”…. eh, not so much. The reproduction was horrendous and the translation was clunky. Some panels looked like they were scanned in at 72dpi and one page even had a word balloon that had been imported and resting on someone’s chest. That book did not deserve such sloppy production. I am happy to hear IDW will be printing these at a larger size in black and white.
