Just found this site (NSFW, so click at your own risk - it is Manara after all):  https://designyoutrust.com/2022/01/milo-manara-comic-art-youve-probably-never-seen/

I love his stuff.  I have all but 1 of his Marvel covers and a handful of others like the Vampi, Unnatural, Nebulina, etc...  and all of the Dark Horse HC collections.  Those books are only in B&W but are awesome.  Highly recommended!  I have a few of the European 48 pg HC's as well and those are in color.  

Not sure what my grades would be, but I've never opened up the issues that I own and I got them bagged and boarded so I'd figure pretty high.  I may grade them eventually...

Some great work.

Would have loved to see this one as a cover :devil:.

Yea, I guess he did a few pinups of a few characters for that mag.  There's another one of a certain Queen of Dragons that you may want to google as well...

And by the way, I just read that Frank Miller is going to start his own publishing company and let Manara do a Sin City story.  Perhaps the only "new" comic I'm looking forward to buying.

I think you can try the grand comic book db, or something like that.  I'm sure there's a site that I'm not remembering but it's possible that it's missing something. It's difficult with so may foreign books and then reprints and versions.  

Thanks for the news though.  I knew of some of this but not all.  Found this though...

This is the best I could find but no idea if it's complete

Thank you, but it is far from complete.

I ordered what I hope is a "first" US printing of one of his stories.  If I'm correct, I'll share the data here.

So I was trying to find the first Manara comics within Penthouse (the titled magazine, not Penthouse Comix).  I know that Click 3 shows up in 1998.  It appears that there might be some more Click in 1994.  A feebay seller has loose pages of Click in one of their listings suggesting a 1978 start date for the first Click.  I should have done more research, but the magazine was not too expensive and I bought a copy.  No Manara in 1978.

I suppose the earliest US Manara publications are the Heavy Metal issues (1982).
