Created by the famous Italian graphic artist Guido Crepax, Valentina is one of the most iconic, sexy graphic novel heroines of all time. With her distinctive black bob and demure, reserved exterior, Valentina is the very essence of European sophistication. However, below the surface burns a passionate young woman eager to inhabit another world; a world where she can explore her dark attraction to that which most frightens her. In VALENTINA AND THE MAGIC LANTERN, Crepax takes us deep into the heart of her most intensely erotic, fetishistic fantasies – a journey which will heat the blood and set the pulse racing as Valentina is drawn into a labyrinth of elaborate costumes and thrilling liaisons; where physical gratification comes in every shape and size, and absolutely anything goes.


'Crepax's stories are sensuous, erotic and cruel inwardly exploring surrealistic fantasy and psychological horror. Guido Crepax is a true innovator of the comic book medium'
Richard Corben, illustrator and comic book artist
'Crepax is a superlative story-teller; he knows that the image must be alive, grasped in a flash'
Roland Barthes
