In The Complete Crepax Vol. 6: Dangerous Liaisons, which spans 1977–1989, the character Valentina, a music, art, and fashion-loving Milanese photographer, ages in "real time." During the course of her sensual, surreal, and domestic adventures, she travels all over the globe. 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.
