Storyline

Famous comic book artist Stephen R. Bissette, creator of DC Comic Book character "The Swamp Thing" and co-creator of the comic character "Constantine" teaches film appreciation and the art of comic book illustration in rural Vermont. Bissette is a life-long fan of DANGER: DIABOLIK and in "From Fumetti to Film," Bissette gives us a guided tour of how, in his own words, DANGER: DIABOLIK was "...the best adaptation of comic book to feature film bar none." His concepts of how the apparent 2-dimensional world of comic book illustrations were faithfully, but imaginatively re-interpreted by director Mario Bava are enhanced with side by side comparisons of the original comic book images laid next to film clips. Other films and television adaptations of comic books in that era were less successful, according to Bissette. Written by Kim Aubry

This short piece is included with the DVD for Danger:Diabolik and it does a nice job of setting the stage for the film--especially since he is a character from Italian comic books and probably unknown to most viewers. There are interviews with John Phillip Law (who played "Diabolik") as well as others and the film especially does a good job of explaining the director's efforts to create a unique look (such as how he framed the shots and how the camera was not static like it was on other contemporary comic movies). All in all, a very enjoyable view BUT way too short. I loved the movie and wanted to know more. Oh and by the way, the short makes mention of a song by The Beastie Boys that utilizes footage from the movie. This video is also included on the DVD BUT it's one of the least interesting and repetitive songs I have heard from them.
