Milo Manara, the well-known illustrator of adult graphic novels, began his career working on "fumetti", the cheap illustrated paperbacks popular in 1950-60s Italy. In 1976, his career took off after his work for the illustrated magazine Pilote. He also became known for his work designing posters for the films of _Federico Fellini_. The two later collaborated on comic books versions of some of Fellini's films.
In the 1980s, Manara turned towards the field of erotic graphic novels, writing and illustrating such titles as "Click!", "Butterscotch", and "Gullivera", (an erotic version of "Gulliver's Travels"). Manara's work is characterized by a playful (some would say juvenile) approach to sex
his women are almost impossibly sexy and their relationships are guilt - and attachment-free. While some of the scenes can be quite graphic, they never cross the line into hardcore pornography. Manara is still active and drawing in Italy.
