The Venus in Furs, Casanova, and Milanese photographer Valentina embark on erotic adventures in this collection of classic Italian comics. In this Italian erotic comics collection, which spans 1977-1989, the character Valentina, a music, art, and fashion-loving Milanese photographer, ages in ‘real time.’ 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.
