Guido Crepax first came to fame for drawing the swinging and often psychedelic adventures of liberated s women like Valentina, who although billed as a photographer spent most of her time having sex in phantasmagorical settings. By this stage in his career there were few cartoonists able to shepherd their reader through a page as well as he could, and few able to draw such gorgeous, elongated women. There are also few who can draw sex so excitingly and innovatively using pattern, ornament and fetishised objects to put the reader in the middle of the indulgent and sensual world that overwhelms the characters. If you had to describe his work in one word, it would be decadent. In adapting de Sade Crepax strips out a lot of the political content you would be surprised how little sex there is in the body of work by a man notorious as a pornographer , but manages to convey the central points the novel is trying to make while indulging in lovely freeform page layouts. Justine concerns a penniless young girl cast adrift at the age of 12 to make her living after growing up in a convent, following her father abandoning his family, which causes the death of her mother.
