Manara is, along with Serpieri, one of the greatest artists of the female form. To read uninformed critics saying that his art is "crude" is laughable, a clear sign of how some people have no knowledge of art.

It's also preposterous, ludicrous to call his work "too hardcore". Maybe there is some magical book of rules that every artist should follow when drawing female characters? I wouldn't know, i have never heard of such book.

Manara's work is, to put simply, far above even popular american artists like Adam Hughes and Frank Cho (Hughes and Cho themselves say so - and they do it not to sound humble, but because THEY actually know what they are talking about).

Every book of Manara available here on Amazon is a masterpiece, and any REAL fan of art should have them on their collections.

I like Milo Manaras art but it is especially enjoyable with the story. This is wonderful book of his best art of women but just images.

Just in case to mention. I would have been thankful to get this kind of hint when I was buying.

For those of you looking for fine images - strong yes.

I love Manara's work and have about 6 of his other books. This book mostly contained duplicate artwork published elsewhere, and not even his best work. Not worth the price. Buy the Click or Butterscotch series instead.

I liked it. Of course I knew I would I like Manara's artwork. Little wierd on some of it. To be expected from someone who worked so closely with Heavy Metal. I don't think I'll buy another collection, but if you are liked Heavy Metal you should love this collection. Hard cover too which surprised me.

Manara is one of the most lauded graphic novel artists, but I have no clue why. His drawings are crude, and way too hard core porn for my tastes. I thought this book would have tasteful nudes. This book is only for Manara fans in my opinion.
