Finally back in print!

This episodic graphic novel follows the journey of Mort Cinder, a man who rises from the grave each time he is killed. His travels through time, space, and the darkest corners of humanity are shown from the point of view of Ezra Winston, an antiquarian who becomes Mort’s companion. Alberto Breccia’s experimental chiaroscuro captures the expressive faces of hardened prisoners, shell-shocked soldiers, and grotesque grave robbers; his atmospheric stories take the reader to eerie cemeteries, ancient Babylonian tombs, and the treacherous waters of the Atlantic.

Presented in English for the first time, these horror-adventure tales are as chilling and accessible as they were half a century ago. Breccia, who is recognized as one of the most influential cartoonists in the world, created Mort Cinder between 1962–1964 in collaboration with the Argentine writer Héctor Oesterheld, best known in the U.S. for the award-winning The Eternaut.
