RARA-AVIS: Re: Giallo

The blog


does a lot of fumetti scans.

Prose-wise I recommend Fantomas by Marcel Allain and Pierre Souvestre

French supercriminal novel. Heavy infouence on the surrealists and the direct inspiration for Diabolik! Holds up pretty well I think.

Also (though I'm not sure which titles) I understand that some of Edgar Wallace's "Krimmis" were an influence on the filmed giallo.
