Gino Udina (Milano, 1970) is an Italian writer of Comic Books, Graphic Novels and Cinema.
In 1993 - at 23 - he created, written and edited (for five years) his own 94 pages monthly black and white comic book bestseller "DEMONHUNTER": a saga about a NYC superhero vice cop versus lots of demon villains, published by "Xenia Edizioni". That was followed by a lasting collaboration with "Sergio Bonelli Editore", while having teaching duties (storytelling 101 classes) at the art school "Magnolia Italia".
In 2002 he created with Fabio Bono, artist for the French market with books under his belt like "Confessions d'un Templier" (Soleil) and "Cathares" (Glénat), the children comic book "TAO", published by "Messaggero dei Ragazzi" - now under animation treatment. While working for other publishers as editor and translator, he joined in 2010 the new French publisher "Physalis" for a bold collection of hard boiled graphic novels. With renowned artist Salvatore Improda made "TIGRE BLANC: L'ORGANIZATSYA": a crime drama set in the Russian underworld that came out at the end of September 2012.
He also wrote a movie for the American market: "HELLINGER". A horror sponsored by Troma entertainment (available on the Amazon stores).
He's now writing the conclusion of Tigre Blanc and a children book that will come out in 2014.
