Manara has made a very long and succesful career with his erotic comics. I don't know if he is that well known in USA, but he is very famous in Europe. He is an exceptionaly guy in the sense that he is a respected auteur despite doing very sex-filled comics.
Serpieri's Druuna series were also very popular, parts 1-3 were more scifi with softcore sex, but from part 4 on it was full HC porno. I don't really know what else Serpieri has done besides the Druuna series. Manara has a fascination with misogynism and S/M, but Serpieri is just blatantly, extremely misogynist and his sex deals mostly with rape.
Both Manara and Serpieri deliver great art work, and their women are VERY bangable.
