Bolero - Milo Manara "Bolero, The History of Man" is a wordless book showing the timeline of man, from early ape up to man in the year 2000. It's like that Darwinism evolution strip, only much longer and detailed, like an extended panorama. The costumes were a visual delight. There were some sexy scenes (naturally), and lots of violence and gore (people being cudgeled, stabbed and shot to death. Even a scene of the Holocaust). So, yeah, pretty much sums up man: Sex and Violence. The only thing that changed were the clothes.

Seems to be a limited edition print, so if anyone wants a copy let me know, I can email my scans to you (8 MB).
