FANTAGRAPHICS.COM EXCLUSIVE:

The first 125 customers to order The Complete Crepax: The Time Eaters & Other Stories will receive a special, numbered, limited edition booklet featuring art created in tribute to the character Valentina, by an international coterie of artists including Brian Bolland, David Lloyd, and many more! These 6" x 9" booklets are printed in full-color on satin finish paper.

Spanning the 1960s–1980s, this science-fiction-themed second volume of our complete Guido Crepax library features, in addition to adventuress Valentina, two more of the famed Italian erotic artist’s heroines. Marianna is a mysterious friend of Valentina’s (or is she? And why do they look so alike?). Belinda is a motorcycle-driving, pop art action star inspired by then contemporary characters like Barbarella. In The Time Eaters & Other Stories, Valentina meets a curious couple in an asylum, encounters strange creatures on a photo assignment, is caught in a Rube-Goldberg-like death trap, and much more. Reproduced in a lush, oversized format to best showcase the sensuous beauty of Crepax’s drawing, these volumes also include contextual essays about the cartoonist — and the real-world, mid-century Milan that the characters inhabit — by an international cast of comics critics and historians. Universally acclaimed as one of the most extravagant and luxurious series of comics collections ever published, The Time Eaters more than lives up to the critical reception of our first volume of The Complete Crepax.
