Click, Milo Manara

One of the most prominent personalities in creation of comics is the Italian cartoonist and artist Milo Manara. In addition to his cooperation with heavyweights such as the company Marvel, he is known in particular for his series of erotic comics, Klik! For the first time these were published in 1983, other series soon follow suit.

What will attract the readers? An erotic story and luxury images of sexy women.

Milo Manara is undoubtedly a gifted cartoonist, who deserves admiration. But the question is what do the readers actually admire about his comics? Is it the technique of his drawings or are they attracted by the story itself and the drawn naked women, who are sensual, show off perfect curves, are explosive and very sexy? We bet on the other things. He takes pain over his plots just as much as making sure that his drawings are really exciting.

The first volume presented an attractive woman, Claudia Cristiani, who is married to an older, rich gentleman. She is kidnapped by a scientist who implants a remotely-controlled device that activates her sexual greed into her is. Other stories stem from her new situation and what they are about does not require a more detailed description.
