Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159582782X, Hardcover)Italian comics superstar Milo Manara brings an epic collection of his graphic fiction to America! The Manara Library presents thousands of pages of the maestro's stunning and sexy comics art, painstakingly translated and comprehensively collected for the first time in a handsome series of hardcover volumes! The first of nine archival editions, The Manara Library Volume One collects two of Manara's seminal works: the sweeping epic Indian Summer, a collaboration with Hugo Pratt, world-renowned creator of Corto Maltese; along with Manara's The Paper Man; both newly translated by Euro comics expert Kim Thompson. This deluxe hardcover also features a heartfelt foreword by comics legend Frank Miller and an informative introduction by Italian editor Andrea Plazzi, discussing the Manara/Pratt relationship and the genesis of the two stories, both set in a lush, romantic vision of the American West.

"The Paper man and Indian summer are both set in colonial America. This is not the American frontier as it actually existed (fact-based though Hugo Pratt's novel obviously is). This is, instead, a mythic West, a wonderland, different from the grit and grime of real-life history. This mythic West is a scary place, to be sure, but it is suffused with romance"--Dust jacket.
