First published in 1968, Crepax's "Bonnie and Clyde" casts Valentina in the former role as the infamous female bandit. Influenced more by Faye Dunaway's iconic turn in the 1967 film than by any kind of inconvenient and unpleasant historical reality, this short story shows Valentina's daydream of criminal glamour.
If I had to pick a favorite Valentina story, I'd have to go with "Valentina nel Metro" (also from 1968), a tale that finds our heroine roaming from car to car on an exceptionally bizarre train ride. Each car in the train is a different comic-book universe, ranging from that of familiar Eurocomix characters like Diabolik (shown above) to literary figures such as Dracula.
In each of these worlds, Crepax blends his style with that of the artists who originated the characters. This panel, influenced by the work of George Pichard (specifically, his Carmen can be seen at center left) merges Crepax's complex, aggressive linework with Pichard's more precise stippling technique.
Of course, there's some rather Crepax-ian license taken with these characters. Here, The Phantom leaves his mark on Valentina in a uniquely adult manner (bonus points for the gratuitous shark appearance).
Now--really--what walk down this particular kinky lane would be complete without an homage to the work of John Willie? Crepax lovingly re-creates the bondage maestro's elaborate ropework and towering heels in this panel that once again finds hapless Valentina at the mercy of a cruel captor.
