Diabolik Turns 50

On November 1, 1962, sisters Angela and Lucianan Giussani unveiled their Italian comic book anti-hero Diabolik to the world. The popularity of the master criminal and his parter Eva Kant eventually led to director Mario Bava’s 1968 live-action film Danger: Diabolik, starring John Phillip Law and Marisa Mell. Through November 21, the Museo della Scienze e della Technologia “Leonardo da Vinci” in Milan is hosting a multimedia restropective (Italian) of art, posters, and memorabilia to mark the character’s milestone anniversary. In addition, Sky Cinema recently released a trailer (above) for its new Diabolik television series slated to debut in 2014.
