The Night Shirt

Front Cover

In this first story of the Early Years, you will see the Keeper barely an adult and leaving his family to go find fortune in a time of chaos and darkness... Blain illustrates on a story by Trondheim and Sfar.

About the author (2005)

Jordi Bernet was born in 1944 in Barcelona, Spain. His grandfather was a writer of novels and his father was a famous cartoonist of his time. Of Jordi's four brothers, two were fine artists and the other two drew for the comics. Jordi Bernet was only fifteen years old when his father died and he had to take over his father's strip. Since then he never looked back and now is well recognized in the United States for the series of a hired gun in the thirties called Torpedo, and most recently for illustrating DC's famous western character, Jonah Hex.
