A short biography of Tito Faraci

TITO FARACI was born in Gallarate (Province of Varese, Italy), on May 23rd. 1965. After working for an extended period of time as a music critic, in 1995 he made his debut in comics, writing for various Disney series.Three years later, he began to compose scripts for "Diabolik" as well. Recently, for Astorina, he wrote the script for two special albums, both with artwork by Giuseppe Palumbo, which reconstruct the "secret origins" of Eva Kant ("Eva Kant, quando Diabolik non c'era", 2003) and Ginko ("Ginko, prima di Diabolik", 2005). He composed the script for "Lupo Alberto", also editing a few adaptations of this series for the animated television cartoon program produced by Rai Trade.     
In 1999, he began contributing to Sergio Bonelli Editore as an author of Dylan Dog, making his debut with the small album entitled "Sotto il vestito troppo" and then continuing with scripts for Nick Raider, Magico Vento and Speciale Cico. In 2000, the Einaudi series Stile Libero published ten stories by Faraci of "hard-boiled" inspiration, which came out under the title "Topolino Noir". Gathering together adventures published in various countries of the world, this was a unique case of an anthology specifically dedicated to a Disneyan script-writer. In 2004, Panini Comics brought out "Il segreto del vetro", the first and so far the only Spider Man story created and set in Italy, with artwork by Giorgio Cavazzano. For Sergio Bonelli Editore, in addition to Brad Barron, in which he is the creator of all eighteen albums that will form the series, he is currently also working on a Tex story.
