Guido CREPAX @ Scott Eder Gallery

Ana marked it ctepax to-read Apr 03, I have no desire to serve as a model. More than fifty pages of seminal Crepax illustrations from Valentina –and from most of his major books– will be on display through April 22nd.

Only that magical feeling you get as you move through that wooden house and see that house on fire, as if in a dream. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. And a lot of fun. The first image is as complex in three panels as a Bianca page with thirty panels.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

Oh I also have those old Sam Keith Wolverine stories. The other great thing on this page is the two heads in the middle of the page, and how they bubble up and mesh with the third panel right above them—you sort of ooze down the hair to the one head—and fuido back to the left. Emmanuelle, Bianca, and Venus in Furs.

There is no reason to be overly tethered to them, beyond as an aesthetic choice. Print This probably speaks a lot to my adoration of the Bianca stories—because they are the primacy of the image and the sequence.


Characters were popping out of panels. You need the few moments you dedicate to action in these comics to hit hard.

Anita Live: Volume 1 by Guido Crepax

I find it really useful to vacillate between looking at how Crepax does pages and how Brandon Graham does pages—because they are almost opposite approaches—one is very much about the primacy of the panel and the rhythms and angels of moving through panels—where I think Graham is a master of the page itself and space.

I need to crepqx in Venus in Furs at some point. No trivia or quizzes yet. And it is in these stories that I think Crepax is at his best—because I think that at his core, that is what he is best at conveying his passion for.

Thim Sagefjord rated it it was ok Feb 03, Time stutters, stops, starts again, rewinds, zooms in—beautiful to watch. Despite a degree in architecture, Crepax’s earliest jobs were in graphics and advertising, from magazines, book design, and album illustrations, to stage sets and consumer design.

He likes to represent erotic scenes without identifying with those he portrays. These early X-force comics presage. On pages like this—he kind of segments off a quarter of the vertical sides of one of his pages—in these instances the left side of the page—so the left side will have a longer vertical rectangle going down the side of the page—and then the right side of the page will have smaller panel sort of zig-zagging their way down the page—which creates a tension as a reader—because take the third page here as an example—I think your natural inclination even with the rule of speech bubble eye following IS to go down the vertical left section of the page like a scroll and THEN move back up to the top.


This is a two page spread that you have to turn the book sideways to actually read, and Stryfe is actually perching his foot on one of the panels from which he is speaking.

Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants. Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. Want to Read saving…. There are sections of Valentina that are very much like Bianca in how they transition seamlessly through different narrative tracks.

This stuff is pure comics.

Valentina stories have been printed and reprinted throughout the decades, though they can be frustratingly hard to find in English. Please try again later.

It warps the whole page and is what is holding the whole thing together. This distance is how he is different from someone crepaz Manara.

I am interested in the steps toward creating the sublime. AmazonGlobal Ship Gjido Internationally. See all customer images. His strengths in rhythm, paneling, and form are most allowed to run around to their logical endpoints in Bianca—where in other works, he is perhaps constrained somewhat. Aug 02, K.
