Danger: Diabolik!

I saw some screenshots several years ago from the film Danger: Diabolik!, they we’re so fantastic and, well, odd, that I had to track the film down. I picked up a cheap copy in the US a year or so ago – the guy selling it me said he had no idea what the film was but seeing the shots on the back he too now wanted to see it – and while the plot and pacing are indeed pretty rubbish, the cinematography, set design and soundtrack are all top notch.

I like the effort Fiat have put into their limited edition Fiat 500 Diabolik. I’ve always wanted a matt black car.

MEN-tal!! Comic book update

mike lives Mental Health Comic Bookwith his Gran and there is something he would like to talk to her about but he worries she may be upset. What Mike doesn’t know is that Gran knows his ‘secret’ anyway and would like to talk with him about it.

Parvinder lives with his mum and dad. They have very clear ideas about his future career. He has other ideas.

Dave enjoys coke and speed, porn and sex. As much of it as he can get. His friends admire his lifestyle. He feels lonely and knows there is something missing in his life. He just can’t quite work out what it is.

One evening in the lives of these three young men are the focus for a new resource about mental health and risk taking.

Members of the Boys and Young Men Network have teamed up with Chris Hathway, a young graphic artist from Worcestershire to produce ‘MEN-tal!’, a comic for young men aged between 16 and 24. Through the story line, the comic looks at issues that both promote and undermine mental health including communication, assertiveness, substance use, friendship, families and love.

The Network will launch the comic on October 10th, World Mental Health Day 2003. It will be free of charge to young men and those who live and work with them in Gloucestershire.
