    1. Βαθμολογία: 9/10Ο συγκεκριμένος τόμος αποτελεί την πρώτη μου επαφή με το έργο του Milo Manara, για τον οποίο είχα ακούσει αμφιλεγόμενες κριτικές – ίσως όχι τόσο για την ποιότητα των σχεδίων του, όσο για το είδος των έργων του. Ο τόμος αυτός περιέχει δυο ιστορίες, με τους τίτλους «Indi [...]

    2. Trigger warning: rape, incest, etc. Also, spoilers.Colour me surprised. And caught off-guard. And maybe a bit ripped-off. Or at least colour me that way three weeks ago when volume one of The Manara Library arrived. I gave myself a cooling-off period before sitting down to untangle exactly what I thought of this initial collection of Milo Manara's work. But before I get to solving the Manaran knot, here's how things went down.A few days before release, I saw Dark Horse had posted a note on Twitt [...]

    3. Wow, now that was rather… disturbing. I fell for the pretty cover and thought this will be something entirely different. I’m sad to say I couldn’t even finish it. This book is not for me. If you can handle nudity, rape, incest and so on, you can go ahead and give it a try. If you thought, it will be a nice story filled with, I don’t know, love and butterflies then I suggest you look the other way.It's clearly not my cup of tea.

    4. Manara's art is so gorgeous-such fine lines, and delicate details. There are two stories in this volume, Indian Summer and the Paper Man. The first was very interesting and I was surprised to discover it was based on a true story from early American history. The second one, taking place in the American west (mid-19th century?), was shorter but captured my attention and my emotion more. A lot less sexual/sensual content than usual from Manara, but still more than the material really demanded. I w [...]

    5. *Warning* Despite the romantic looking cover, this book is meant for Mature readers only.This is my first Manara graphic novel. His artwork is beautiful, and I wish the panels were bigger because there was so much detail.The first story Indian Summer is set during the American colonial period. It deals with rape, revenge, corruption, incest, and savage battles. While the subject matter is very unpleasant, I was not offended by it. And as a woman, I did not find it exploitative at all. It is trut [...]

    6. These two stories were weird. d graphic. But mostly weird and the first was a bit nauseating to read. If I'd known beforehand they were both set in pioneer times and were as graphic as they are, I would not have requested to read it via NetGalley. So clearly I am not the target audience.If you like mature graphic novels that deal with adult issues and don't mind a few naked women along the way, then you'll probably like this. But like I said, it wasn't for me.

    7. I requested this book to read via Netgalley and the 2 featuring stories were nothing like I expected. It was weird, certain scenes were very graphical and "incestous". Other than that, I actually enjoyed the illustrator's overall graphics, but still in whole it wasn't my cup of tea.(Thought the cover and the plot was misleading)

    8. Warning! This graphic novel is not for everyone, especially those under the age of 18! Yes, there is violence (name one superhero comic book that doesn't contain a senseless act of killing or maiming) but what will turn off most readers is the author's incessant depiction of rape, incest and sexual exploitation of women in "Indian Summer", the first story in the volume. This is not the "gentile" Colonial period where Indians were noble and overly helpful to the Puritan settlers. I think some rea [...]

    9. Recently I've been trying to work through books that I've placed suspended holds on, or added to a list of interesting things, or things I want to read. I found this one on such a list, but I'm not quite sure how it got there; I have a vague recollection of seeing it recommended somewhere online, perhaps a blog I read or stumbled upon. Like other (older) European comics I've read, it has beautiful artwork and an unfortunate tendency towards overly sexualized and objectified female characters. Th [...]

    10. The content of this book is pretty problematic. It exists to collect the works of a great artist, and as such it feels unfair to judge it too heavily based on the non-visual content. But Hugo Pratt's plotting and characterisation does, broadly, disgust me. He's clearly immensely talented, but his treatment of his female characters is deeply concerning. Even worse, in writing this story for Manara - an artist who is, basically, very good at drawing girls (understating his talent, obviously, but t [...]

    11. Dark Horse has been one of the premier publishers of classic comic reprints for some time now, along with Fantagraphics and relative newcomer IDW. When it comes to English translations of European classics, it's only competition is Humanoids, the Swiss/French publisher who ended a long drought by releasing English versions of titles from their huge back catalogue, reminding North American comic readers why Moebius is so respected by the rest of the world. The Manara Library does the same task fo [...]

    12. I tried to finish this book, but I couldn't. It made me sick. The beautiful cover and book description/blurb did not prepare me for what was inside. The cover makes the reader think this has some elements of historical romance. I was thinking something along the lines of The Last of the Mohicans. I was not prepared for the graphic rape scenes, senseless nudity, senseless violence towards women, incest, graphic depictions of molestation of a female minor, and complete objectification of women fou [...]

    13. I wish I hadn't read this book. The violent sexualization of women, women used as objects, rape, incest -- that a work that showcases sexual assault as erotic shows how normalized this view has become. I picked the book up because it was listed in 500 Essential Graphic Novels, and that such a book would be considered essential is telling. No amount of skill makes up for the disgusting content -- and Manara is certainly a skilled artist. Sadly, his contribution to the pantheon of graphic novels i [...]

    14. Here is a beautiful hardcover presentation of Pratt and Manara's masterful collaboration 'Indian Summer' as well as an early Manara strip calle 'The Paper Man'. I had nearly forgotten the beauty and care so eveident in Manara's visual story telling. Not a line is wasted, and every emotion his pictures elicit is a revelation in service to the story itself. Dark Horse's presentation in this new delux hardcover format has arrived just on time, and is a fitting tribute in this first volume to the ar [...]

    15. The stories don't entirely hang together, the sexual politics are all over the place, but oh my this is beautiful. Not just his famous women, either - the men, even when they're not impossibly handsome, are wonderfully rendered, and above all, the landscapes! The leaves, the clouds, the little wood cabinsey make me want to run away and live in the wilds of America, except not now, and in fact not in the real world at all because it can never have looked so perfect as it does here.

    16. Manara is one of the most talent comics-artists in the world. He's Italian and not too well known in the States. I'm glad Dark Horse is republishing most of his work in this "Manara Library" series to help introduce him to American audiences. This volume (#1) has a great foreword by Frank Miller.

    17. Excellent, extremely male oriented erotica. Manara's pictures are wonderful, the content might be not seen as erotica by some but as exploitation instead. I liked it and saw the humor in the work.

    18. Beautiful art, but I could have done with a less concerted effort to shock with deviant sex.See my whole review here: noflyingnotights/?p=8943
