Valentina. Plus, historical and cultural footnotes, an interview with Crepax, and other extras.
From the publisher:
Collecting the work of an international icon in the fields of comics, advertising, and erotica!
Most of the comics in this volume, spanning 1965 to 1985, have never before been published in English. Crepax's first foray into comics magazines-- "The Curve of Lesmo"--introduces our proto-feminist heroine, Valentina, the globe-trotting Milanese photographer. In other stories, she becomes a mother, outwits a gang of jewel thieves, flashes back to her childhood and adolescence, encounters a mysterious cello, and much more!
