While the details are still being worked out, there is no one more suitable in the world to bring the legendary King of Crime from the comic pages to animated life!Iggy Pop has earned millions of fans from his amazing talent as singer, songwriter and actor and brings his immeasurable raw power to the role of Sadistik. His seminal band Iggy and the Stooges, inspired hundreds of thousands of punk and hard rock bands and his songs, including Lust for Life, Real Wild Child and China Girl are recognized classics.The Sadistik photo novels have sold innumerable copies worldwide in many languages and has a large cult following, due in part to some offbeat 1960s action films from Turkey. Since 2005, Comicfix has been releasing the Sadistik comics in English for the first time.Mort Todd has had a long career in comics, film, TV, animation and music production working with such companies as Marvel Comics, MTV and Playboy.

Mort's company Comicfix produces music videos, animation and publishes comics.Sadistik: Strip & Kill will be an animated 7-part mini-series created for the web and is loosely based on the 1966 photo novel and 1967 Turkish film of the same name. In it, Sadistik, along with his statuesque companion Dana, attempts to steal a top secret formula, battling gangsters and spies also after the formula, all the while trying to keep a step ahead of the authorities.Other musicians have already recorded parts for the series including Matt Verta-Ray of the band Heavy Trash, British songstress Gemma Ray and Charles E. Hall, who recorded the song Beware: Sadistik for The Diabolikal Super-Kriminal film. Bands are also contributing to the soundtrack with the first video, They Call Him Sadistik by Psycho Charger, already released.

Liv Tyler's Acting Debut... and the SADISTIK Connection!


Mort Todd, writer of the SADISTIK photo novels, has been professionally involved in comics since he was a teenager, and became Editor-in-Chief of Cracked Magazine at 23. He quickly turned the title from a fifth-rate Mad imitation to a third-rate one.Almost 20 years before he started publishing SADISTIK, the premier photo comic, Mort dabbled in the medium at Cracked. Nanny Dickering was a long-running strip in the magazine, most notably drawn by the legendary King of Pin-Ups, cartoonist Bill Ward. Nanny would do satiric interviews with the "Kings" of various industries (from skateboards to hamburgers, along with celebrities) and Mort got it in his head to create a photo comic based on the feature.A medly of Nanny Dickering poses as illustrated by Bill Ward, The King of the Pin Ups!Who better to portray Nanny than an actual former Playboy Playmate? Model and musician Bebe Buell was essayed to play the role of the voluptuous Cracked interviewer and Mort himself played the role of the "Rock Video King." The photos were shot by Kevin McMahon, a talented TV director and producer who went on to produce TV series for such icons as Howard Stern, Jackie Mason and Geraldo Rivera (he was there when Geraldo got his nose busted)!The cover to Cracked Collectors' Edition #69 featuring the photo comic with Mort Todd (as the Rock Video King) and Bebe Buell as Nanny Dickering.One of the characters was portrayed by musician Charles E. Hall, who went on to record the revered "Beware: Sadistik!" theme song used in The Diabolikal Super-Kriminal film about the King of Crime. The song is also used for the Kickstarter Sadistik animation video that just premiered.Most interestingly, the photo comic also showcased the media premiere of future blockbuster movie star Liv Tyler! Long before Lord of the Rings and other memorable feature films, Bebe's daughter Liv made her debut in a cameo as a secretary in a Cracked magazine photo comic!A 9 year old Liv Tyler makes her acting debut in... Cracked Magazine?!The photo comic appeared in Cracked Collectors' Edition #69 and is perhaps one of the only issue of Cracked Collectors' Edition to live up to its title! All involved in the Cracked production have gone on to greater things and made their mark on the entertainment world. Mort is currently releasing the SADISTIK photo novels and neck-deep in the production of the SADISTIK animated series. He has worked with many celebrities in the past and is drawing many of them together today to create voices for the project.Soon, the earth-shattering announcement of the revered pop legend selected to do the voice of SADISTIK will be revealed and it will rock your world! Watch the video and see if you can guess who it is! And after you watch it, why not pledge a sum from $1 and up to the production and receive a Diabolikal Reward?

SADISTIK against the Kosmonauts!


Here's a new SADISTIK pin-up by Mort Todd that will appear on the back cover of the next issue of the Italian sci-fi comic, INNER SPACE. The title "Terrore nello Spazio" (Terror in Space) was the original title of Mario Bava's Planet of the Vampires and follows the tradition of original Sadistik photo novel titles based on films.

"Дьявольский Преступник Высшего качества" is a translation of Diabolikal Super-Kriminal, which in Russian becomes "The Devil Criminal of the First-Rate Quality!"

Mr KRIME had a grand scheme to take control of the French government and spread his power throughout the continent and ultimately the world! How his plot was thwarted is still a mystery... Just as his animatronic servants were about to strike, they malfunctioned and Mr KRIME disappeared off the face of the Earth!

R.I.P. Rasta Artist Tennyson Smith


One of my favorite artists, and a true friend, Tennyson Smith, recently passed away. He was a fantastic oil painter, but that medium also may have led to his death by leukemia at a much too young age. Perhaps not well known by comic fans, he was the only Rastafari artist to work at Marvel Comics.A great pleasure in my life was to produce the Bob Marley biography Tale of the Tuff Gong as Editor-in-Chief of the Marvel Music line. We worked closely with the Marley family and estate through Bob's Tuff Gong Records Art Director Neville Garrick, who had painted some of Bob's album covers. I chose veteran Marvel artist Gene Colan (Iron Man, Daredevil, Tomb of Dracula) to pencil the series because of his cinematic layouts, but we wanted the finishes to be true to Bob's Jamaican and Rasta roots.Neville introduced me to Tennyson, or Jimmy as he was also known, and he was the perfect artist to do the completed art. He did full oil painting over Gene's layouts and gave them a superb look that only a native Jamaican could bring to the project.We spent a lot of time together and Tennyson gave the books a true Rasta perspective and opened my mind to an intense philosophy. Due to Marvel's distribution ineptitude (the graphic novels were only shipped to comic shops and not record or book stores as intended) only the first two books, Iron and Lion, were released and the final chapter Zion was completed but never released. Ever since then I have been working with the Marley estate to get the three graphic novels packaged as one trade paperback... so far with no luck.Tennyson painted the three covers himself (plus a cover for the planned paperback edition) along with an incredible 10 page supplement that was a history of Jamaica and the Rastafari. Hopefully this reverent comic will again see print and enjoy the wide audience it truly deserves.While at Marvel I also commissioned Jimmy to paint some covers for some horror titles. He did some wild covers featuring the muck-encrusted Man Thing and the Zombie from the classic Bill Everett comic.After I left Marvel, I worked with Tennyson as much as possible and helped him sell some artwork including pieces from a series of African warrior paintings.Recently I used Jimmy as a voice artist for an animated series about Sadistik, The Diabolikal Super-Kriminal. Jimmy played a character named Vex, who helps the King of Crime procure weapons and gets involved in other shenanigans. His character was inspired by the Rasta 'suffarahs' who faced persecution in the 1960s when the series is set.Over the last six months of his life he kept painting, though he had switched from oils to watercolor. I miss Jimmy an awful lot and the world is really missing out on a uniquely awesome talent and his potential. I hope we can get the Marley book back in print to serve as a permanent testimony to his amazing skills.I know with Jah as his guide he is in a place where Bob is able to express his thanks and praise for Tennyson's contribution to the understanding of the Rasta.R.I.P. Tennyson--- RASTAFARI!----Mort Todd[...]

To read in Italian click HERE)The principal heroes in tights of the 1960s have often passed from the monochromatic world of the nero fumetto (noir comics) to the multi-colored film screen, by masters like Mario Bava, whose Danger: Diabolik is a celebration of conceptual Pop Art, or from inventive filmmakers like Umberto Lenzi (Kriminal), Fernando Cerchio (Il marchio di Kriminal) or Piero Vivarelli (Satanik). The sadism of these prototypes is followed by the eroticism of the later 60s: from the joyful pacifism of Barbarella, carried to the screens by Roger Vadim in 1967, to the more morbid and spicy Isabella, shot by Sergio Corbucci in 1969. But the story of the Italian exchanges between cinema and comics, in big part, is still to be written, investigating the syntactic connections in the second half of the sixties, crossing transversally psychedelia, exoticism, technological fascination, psychoanalysis, feminism and aesthetic sadism. Those films include the imaginative kitsch of improbable heroes masked like Superargo, Fenomenal, Flashman or Fantabulous, which serve a special function. In order to try to define the transition of these media hybrids, particularly the most wicked one of all, SADISTIK (known in Italy as Killing), exists the documentary of SS-Sunda. His film THE DIABOLIKAL SUPER-KRIMINAL, researches not only the origin of the photo comic directed by the actor Rosary Borelli, but interviews the actors almost forty year later (from the actresses Erna Shurer and Gabriella Giorgelli, well-known for their film roles, to actor who portrayed Killing, revealing his true identity at the end), and reconsts the historical and cultural context of its origins, including interviews with expert comics connoisseurs like Roman Scavolini and Corrado Farina. It is not accidental that the before the screening of SS-Sunda's documentary is the second film of Farina, Baba Yaga, adapted from the Valentina comic of Guido Crepax, which challenged the sexual taboos of the period. And to represent the world of the neri cinefumetti (noir comic films) in which THE DIABOLIKAL SUPER-KRIMINAL lurks, comes Mister X by Piero Vivarelli, one of the darker and nihilistic titles of the vein.
