When I was out buying presents for others, I couldn’t help buying a copy of BERNET for myself for christmas. I just love this book. It is a wonderful collection of work by spanish comics artist Jordi Bernet, ranging from his TORPEDO 1936 stuff (which he is probably best known for in the USA) and his girlie art including CLARA de NOCHE.

His mastery of the brush is second to none. He has a loose and yet precise style that often features dry brush, so he gets a surprising amount of tonality out of black and white art…

It is put out by AUAD publishing in San Francisco, the same company that put out some TOTH books. The printing and packaging in this book is nicer than in the earlier ones though. You can find more info at
