Jordi Bernet made his debut as a comic artist when he was just fifteen years old, taking over the humorous series Dona Urraca from his father, Miguel Bernet (a.k.a. Jorge), who died in 1960. Bernet illustrated several series from 1968 to 1972 including Dan Lacombe, Wat 69 and Andrax with scenarist Miguel Cusso, and Paul Foran with Jose Larraz. His got his big break in 1982 when he took over Torpedo from Alex Toth in the Spanish Creepy magazine. This series became his claim to fame. Also in the early 80's, Bernet launched Sarvan for Cimoc with writer Antonio Segura, and Kraken in Metropol. He also worked with the scenarist Carlos Trillo on Light and Bold and Ivanpiire. In 1992 he launched the magazine Luca Torelli es Torpedo with friend and scenario-writer Enrique Abuli with whom he also collaborated on the Snake series. Bernet also worked on three albums of Clara de Noche from 1993 to 1995 with Trillo. Bernet has established himself as one of the masters of realistic comics, with a very personal and expressive style.

The first story "The brief life of Billy dynamite" is about a young boy who sees his mother killed and is befriended by Jonah Hex. The second tale is one of my favorites. An old Indian woman named Porivo hires Jonah and the end of the story made me laugh. The other stories in this collection include: Frist True Love, Tall Tales and Riders on the Storm. Every Bullet tells a Story and Blood Lies Bleeding. In all of these stories there is a message which is clear. You do not mess with Jonah Hex because he plays judge, jury and executioner. In the real world evil thugs do not always receive the punishment they deserve. However, the bad guys always receive their just due in Jonah Hex's world. This is probably one of the reasons he has become so popular.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Predator Hunter: a warrior's memoir)
In a day and age where most creators are writing for the trade, this book always stood out as stories you could enjoy unto their own. Wish other companies would embrace that approach.
