From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cattivik was created by Bonvicini who later passed the character to Guido Silvestri (Silver) as a gift.

Cattivik is an Italian humoristic comic book character created by Bonvi (Franco Bonvicini).

The character first appeared in 1965.[1] He later appeared in the magazine Tiramolla on 19 July 1970. Later, the development of the character was given to one of his assistants, Silver (creator of Lupo Alberto, another successful comic strip in Italy),[2] because Bonvi was too busy with his other works (among them, the famous Sturmtruppen). The character is a more or less declared parody of another successful series in Italy, Diabolik, created by the Giussani Sisters.[3][4] The character quickly became popular in Italy,[5] his anti-heroic nature is overblown to grotesque proportions (he is a burglar and general criminal, lives in sewers, takes showers with toxic waste and hates everything "good natured") and politically incorrect humour (fart and burp jokes, italian politicians caricatures and social commentary).

The two main characteristics of Cattivik are the pear-shaped form (which is an evolution of the original form designed by Bonvi, which was shaped more like a giant pepperoni) and an accent (he omits the final vowels of most words) that could be both Northern-Italian or Apulian.

A magazine called Cattivik was published in Italy from 1989. It ceased to be published in December 2005.
