The Great Adventure (1978), page 102 panels 4-10. Milo Manara.
My latest Robot 6 column spotlights one of my favorite cartoonists, Milo Manara, who in a lot of ways is also one of the most overlooked. Not commercially -- I mean, a lot of my favorite artists are fucking around in the world of 100-copy print runs -- but critically, because Manara's stuff (not the page above, but probably the majority of the other ones he's drawn over the course of a 40-year career) has such a prominent intersection with pornography. Only now is any of his work getting reprinted in the US, and boy are the books overpriced. Well, I thought I'd give you the chance to check out a great little slice of Manara comics absolutely free, and to read what I had to say about it to boot. Do so here.
Oh yeah, I'll hopefully be writing a big article on some Manara comics soon... once I figure out which ones to tackle.
