As revealed in a report posted on AGI Online, the Italian comics legend Guido Crepax died this morning, aged 80, in Milan. Crepax had suffered from multiple sclerosis for some time.
Crepax, best known for his strip "Valentina" and other adult oriented
stories, was also a seminal creator involved in Heavy Metal magazine. His
work was studied by notable theoretician and semiologist Roland Barthes,
who described comics as a "great metaphor for life."
