Milo Manara (1945) studied architecture and painting and made his comics debut in 1969 drawing for Genius. In 1970 he illustrated for the magazine Terror and in 1971 he drew the erotic series Jolanda de Almaviva. Manara began publishing his work in several Franco-Belgian comics magazines including Charlie Mensuel, Pilote and L’Écho des savanes. For (A SUIVRE) Manara created the first stories featuring HP and Giuseppe Bergman, which grew to become a large body of work. Manara’s reputation for producing comics that revolve around elegant, beautiful women caught up in unlikely and fantastical erotic scenarios became solidified with works such as Il Gioco (also known as Click or Le Déclic), Il Profumo dell’invisibile (Butterscotch), Candid camera (Hidden Camera).
