Milo Manara

Milo Manara. A great illustrator of erotica.

Maurilio Manara – acknowledged professionally as Milo Manara – (born Sept 12, 1945 in Lüsen). Milo Manara is an Italian erotic comic book author and artist, most honorable for his erotic advance to the medium.

He got his comics debut in 1969 drawing for “Genius”, a Fumetti neri series of pocket-format books from publisher Furio Vanio. In 1970 he worked as an illustrator for the magazine Terror, and starting in 1971 depicted the erotic series Jolanda de Almaviva.

Milo Manara's comic book coverSome of his most famed strips include “Click” (in 3 parts) and “Wendy”, Wanda and Wilma. His comic strips and sketches center on elegant, gracious, beautiful young women caught up in unbelievable and fantastical erotic scenarios. For example his famous works such as Gioco (1983, also acknowledged as Click or Le Déclic), (1986, Butterscotch), (1988, Hidden Camera). He apparently has a fixation with the female bottom. A lot of his comic strips have subjects of bondage, domination, submission, humiliation and invisibility. They vary in their explicitness, but the overall mood is playful. His skill in making ambience, his outstanding talent, and his episodic excursions into more “mainstream” tales, have served to bring him an atmosphere of artistic reputability.

His work was brought to an American audience mostly through its appearence in Heavy Metal magazine. In present days Milo Manara is considered one of the most authoritative comics creators in the world

Manara worked on X-Men project scripted by Chris Claremont for Marvel Comics. X-Men: Ragazze in fuga was released in April 2009 in Italy; in July 2010, the book was issued in the United States, titled as X-Women.
