Fumetti Neri (Lit. black comics) is a subgenre of Italian comics, born in Italy with the creation of the Diabolik character in 1962.

The heroes of fumetti neri are more anti-hero or villain than traditional heroes. Diabolik itself was very loosely based on the French Fantômas character. The subsequent heroes in these comics were all inspired on Diabolik and often have a K in their names.

We have :

  • Kriminal by Magnus and Max Bunker; more violent version of Diabolik.
  • Satanik by the same authors, a female version of Diabolik but with supernatural and horrorific elements.
  • Génius etc.

In France, these comics were published in small size editions by the likes of Elvifrance.
