    Killing is an Italian photo comic series featuring an eponymous character. The series was entitled Satanik in the French edition, Kiling in Argentina as well as being published in Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Germany and Venezuela. Sold as "Photostories for Adults", it ran for 62 issues starting in 1966, and was published by Ponzoni and editor Pietro Granelli with each episode directed by actor and singer Rosario Borelli. The character was also known as KiLiNK, the star of several unauthorized films shot in Turkey during the late 1960s and early 70s.

Examples of killing in a Sentence

  1. Kathleen Turner:

    I’ll be quite honest, which is my won't: I didn’t feel very welcomed by the cast. I remember I was wearing this difficult sequined gown — and my high heels were absolutely killing me. I found it odd that none of the actors thought to offer me a seat. Finally, it was one of the older crew members that said, ‘Get Miss Turner a chair.’ The‘Friends’actors were such a clique — but I don’t think my experience with them was unique. I think it was simply that they were such a tight little group that nobody from the outside mattered.

  2. Vassilis Vassileiou:

    They were first killing Westerners and then laughing at the dead, i was constantly hearing shouts, shots and bangs on the doors.

  3. Drew Rosenberg:

    I was stunned at what I found, not only were unlicensed drivers killing people in numbers only exceeded by drunk drivers, but many times they were barely being punished and many times faced no charges at all.

  4. Jim Fitzgerald:

    It had to be one of the most difficult decisions anyone would have had to make in life, even if you’re not that close to [ your loved one ], Ted Kaczynski blood runs through your veins, too. And you have to make a decision on whether to just leave Ted Kaczynski alone and let Ted Kaczynski do what Ted Kaczynski does, which is killing people, or come forward and try to save lives. I have no doubt, and I know for a fact, that this was very difficult for David. He kept trying to talk himself out of it.

  5. Chris Smith:

    The scenarios that we investigate in this study are really at the extreme optimistic end of what could be done without negative emissions or killing off power plants or cars before their time, while the solution we propose is technically possible, it still doesn't look particularly likely. However, I would claim that mapping it out is a good starting point, and consistent with the definition of an infrastructure commitment. It would be interesting to see if, or how, some of The Results change with perhaps more real-world assumptions.
