IGGY POP is SADISTIK! Diabolikal Super-Kriminal Unmasked as Rock Legend!

Comicfix is very excited to announce that Iggy Pop, the wildest man in rock 'n' roll history, is set to portray the voice of Sadistik, the Diabolikal Super-Kriminal in a new animated series, Sadistik: Strip & Kill, directed by Mort Todd. While the details are still being worked out, there is no one more suitable in the world to bring the legendary King of Crime from the comic pages to animated life!

Iggy Pop has earned millions of fans from his amazing talent as singer, songwriter and actor and brings his immeasurable raw power to the role of Sadistik. His seminal band Iggy and the Stooges, inspired hundreds of thousands of punk and hard rock bands and his songs, including Lust for Life, Real Wild Child and China Girl are recognized classics.

The Sadistik photo novels have sold innumerable copies worldwide in many languages and has a large cult following, due in part to some offbeat 1960s action films from Turkey. Since 2005, Comicfix has been releasing the Sadistik comics in English for the first time.

Mort Todd has had a long career in comics, film, TV, animation and music production working with such companies as Marvel Comics, MTV and Playboy. In 2007 he produced the critically acclaimed documentary about Sadistik called The Diabolikal Super-Kriminal. Mort's company Comicfix produces music videos, animation and publishes comics.

Sadistik: Strip & Kill will be an animated 7-part mini-series created for the web and is loosely based on the 1966 photo novel and 1967 Turkish film of the same name. In it, Sadistik, along with his statuesque companion Dana, attempts to steal a top secret formula, battling gangsters and spies also after the formula, all the while trying to keep a step ahead of the authorities.

Other musicians have already recorded parts for the series including Matt Verta-Ray of the band Heavy Trash, British songstress Gemma Ray and Charles E. Hall, who recorded the song Beware: Sadistik for The Diabolikal Super-Kriminal film. Bands are also contributing to the soundtrack with the first video, They Call Him Sadistik by Psycho Charger, already released. Many other surprises are to be announced concerning other well-known personalities providing voices for the series.
