The Venus in Furs, Casanova, and Milanese photographer Valentina embark on erotic adventures in this collection of classic Italian comics.
In this Italian erotic comics collection, which spans 1977–1989, the character Valentina, a music, art, and fashion-loving Milanese photographer, ages in "real time." First, she saves Effi, a German heiress, from kidnappers, and they become lovers. Valentina also has an affair with Bruno, a young cellist. Dangerous Liaisons follows our heroine into middle-aged home life with her longtime partner, Phil, with whom she has a grown son, Mattia. Two of Crepax's lauded graphic adaptations: "Venus in Furs" and "The Memoirs of Casanova" are featured in this volume.
"Guido Crepax was one of the most visually inventive cartoonists and graphic artists of his generation — every page is a stunning invention, and his influence is still being felt. Sexy, stylish, elegant, strange — the new Fantagraphics Crepax library editions are the definitive collection of this master's work for today's audience." — Paul Pope - New York Times Best-Selling cartoonist
