The Complete Crepax 2: The Time Eater and Other Stories

Guido Crepax

Italian cartoonist Guido Crepax’s Comics, saturated with surrealism and sophistication, infused fashion, fine art, sex, history, and the French New Wave into the mid 20th century adventure serial – and legitimized the erotic genre in Europe. Inspired by 1920s film icon Louise Brooks, his signature character Valentina is a fierce femme fatale and glamorous, globetrotting photographer. Her passion for BDSM flourishes in the anything-goes 1960s and ’70s – and her sensual exploits often occur on the border between dreaming and waking life.
In this science-fiction-themed, second volume, adventurer Valentina crashes into space pirates, battles androids, discovers an astronaut in her garden, and much more. Spanning the 1960s-1980s, “The Time Eater and Other Stories” features more of the famed Italian erotic artist’s heroines. Belinda is a motorcycle-driving, pop art action star who must solve the mystery of the Vinylvores, while Marianna is an enigmatic friend of Valentina’s (Or is she? And why do they look so alike?)
