Below, twelve covers of the very racy Italian fumetto Pornostar, with its blonde protagonist Beba (and her dark-haired partner in crime Fiona). Pornostar is another Giovanni Romanini creation, along with Wallestein, Ulula, Lady Domina, et.al, circa mid-1980s, and the covers are by Roberto Molino. See a few more here.

Wallestein was an adult comic originally produced in Italy from 1974 to 1982, but popularized in France by the publisher Elvifrance when they picked up the series in 1977. Jimmy Wallestein is a nobleman and playboy who hides his deformed face behind masks that allow him to assume various identities. He’s on a mission of vengeance against those who killed his father Count Wallestein, but he’s also a crimefighter—though a particularly vicious one. Posted below are twelve beautiful Elvifrance Wallestein covers depicting this curious character. And if the guy on the last cover isn’t Iggy Pop, we must need a new Ritalin prescription.
