This book collects short comics in which the famed erotic Eurocartoonist takes on the classic Universal monsters, and much more.
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 until that time, and legitimized the erotic genre. Crepax: Dracula, Frankenstein, and Other Horror Stories 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, several never before published, and influenced by the French New Wave.
“Crepax's audacious visual techniques, which combine sensual linework, fluid storytelling, and innovative panel breakdowns, strongly influenced both his contemporaries and subsequent generations of comics artists, and they look as strikingly bold today as they did a half-century ago.” — Booklist
