Specialist Notes

Moreanimals in this story full of symbols. Valentina landed on a deserted and aridland like after an atomic war. Here she is bitten by a Rattlesnake Atricaudatus(a common rattlesnake that Crepax, precise as usual, likes to call by itsscientific name) and dies like all the other characters in the"banal" tale of "love and death" that Rembrandt andValentina conceived together. In the last cartoon there is all the pessimismand the disenchantment of the author for what was happening in Italy in thatpart of the 70s: the end of ideologies, the years of lead, the beginning of anew era of cynicism. disengagement. Exhaling her last breath, Valentina watchesthe sunset and with a vein between the ironic and the caustic sighs "whatugly colors!".
