The intriguing opening pages of Manara's Dies Irae, one of those trippy sequences that proves that Milara, if he didn't love porn so much, could draw whatever he wanted:

WARNING: this is a Milo Manara comic book. So of course it has nudity, but it's mild stuff, for his standards.

I was going to post more pages from Milo Manara's The Great Adventure, but I'm going to skip to the finale, which is my favourite part. The bulk of the story was a dream Giuseppe Bergman had, then he wakes up in a ferry with HP and finds out he hasn't even started his Great Adventure.

In the third volume of the Borgia series, once again I choose an arresting sequence that demonstrates the finest qualities of Milo Manara's art, his talent for painstaking details and gorgeous designs.

Alejandro Jodorowsky and Milo Manara's Borgia is a violent series about Pope Alexander VI's reign of crime and lust. It's a story full of political back-stabbing, violence and sex. The ingredientes for a great comic book. Here's one of my favourite sequences:

It should be said that Manara is one of the greatest comic book artists of our times. Although he has a preference for porn, he can draw anything he wants - the level of detail in his pencils is always astonishing.

On Flickr, somebody presumably living in or staying in Europe has put up images from that Italian X-Men graphic novel that Chris Claremont and Italian superstar artist Milo Manara did. Right here. Anyone want to translate what the back cover, which is in one the images, says?

The book stars Storm, Rogue, Rachel Summers, Sage, Kitty Pryde, and Psylocke, and it's about pirates in Madripoor.
