Italy’s Guido Crepax is one of the most acclaimed cartoonists in the world. In the 1960s and ’70s, he created and chronicled the adventures of Valentina, arguably the strongest and most independent female character in European comics up to that time, and legitimized the erotic genre. Fantagraphics’ ambitious Complete Crepax series launched in 2016 to international acclaim, and this handsome boxed set contains our first two volumes (Crepax: Dracula, Frankenstein, and Other Horror Stories and The Time Eater and Other Stories) — just in time for holiday sales!
Vol. 1 features, in addition to the artist’s unique take on the eponymous literary works by Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley, a half dozen Valentina stories influenced by the French New Wave, including several never before collected. In this sci-fi themed Vol. 2, photographer Valentina goes to space, battles androids, and discovers an astronaut in her garden, on top of many other surprises.
