Diabolik is a series of comic books created by Italian authors Angela and Luciana Giussani in 1962. The main character, Diabolik, is a masked criminal who lives a life of luxury through his bold thefts and scams. He is accompanied by his partner and accomplice, Eva Kant. Diabolik has been published monthly in Italy since 1962 by the publisher Astorina. The series has been a huge success in Italy and has been translated into many languages around the world. In 2021, a film inspired by the Diabolik series was directed by Francesco Andreini and was released in Italy on January 1, 2021. The film stars David Coco as Diabolik and Miriam Leone as Eva Kant. In addition to Diabolik and Eva Kant, the series also includes other important characters such as Commissioner Ginko, Diabolik's sworn enemy, and the pharaonic billionaire Altea, who Diabolik has often targeted in his thefts.
Milo MANARA is an Italian cartoonist, mainly erotic.
At the age of 22, he worked as an assistant to the Spanish sculptor Barrocal, discovering erotic comics through the work of Jean-Claude Forest (Barbarella) and Guy Peelaert (Jodelle). He sees here, the way to finance his studies of architecture, by means of this "hobby". In 1968, he published Genius and Jolanda.
In 1974, his adaptation of the Decamerron and then in 1976 The Monkey installed it in a field that remains "a niche" of the comic book. It is with The Declic that he allows this niche to reach a large audience by becoming the leader, in 1983!
Working with Hugo Pratt or Federico Fellini, Manara becomes the reference of erotic comics! His precise feature, his culture filled with classical pictorial and sculptural works, his passion for the 18th and 19th centuries make him a unique artist.
