"Valentina And The Magic Lantern" by Guido Crepax (first published in 1976, this edition is published by Headline Publishing Group, Great Britain, 2012), Part 3


Crepax famously modelled Valentina's image on the legendary 1920's actress Louise Brooks (the pictures below are from her 1928 film, "Pandora's Box").  Considering that she first appeared in his comics from the mid sixties, she must have been at odds with the hairy, hippy youth trends of the day. It captures her Italian elegance and sophistication perfectly.
