“We’re huge fans of Hunt’s work … not just for his humour – which can go from broad-based to laser-targetted satire and from traditional cartoony slapstick to something rather more ribald – but for his incredible cartooning art.” – Forbidden Planet

Casanova, the great lover and adventurer, is 73 and nearing the end of his life. He plans to make one last grand seduction, and devises a precarious plan to that end. Needless to say, in the cartoon hands of Hunt Emerson, the whole thing goes disastrously and hilariously wrong.

As the narrative unfolds, Casanova reflects on his past exploits. Hunt Emerson has dipped into Casanova’s memoirs,
My Life, for these flashback sequences – amorous tales that are funny, warm, human and very sexy, without ever being explicit.

“Initially, Emerson’s drawings seem like straightforward blocks of black and white. However, they burst with detail; backgrounds change wildly from frame to frame, [a] nod to Herriman, but also cumulatively provide the dizzying effect of a Tex Avery animation. … Emerson’s visual imagination is so hard to contain that he can draw a face as a couple of splots of paint and get away with it.”
