Edmond Fernández

“Edmond is a methodical illustrator, rhythmic, exceedingly accurate, and very thoughtful. His style is photographic. When he sketches a building or a situation, it’s as precise as it exists in reality or as it would be if it existed. His women – his type of woman, as illustrators always have a specific type of woman they repeatedly depict throughout their career – are sculptural, perfect, softly sensual, akin to a sculpture.” Words from Armando Matias Guiu for the magazine Bruguelanda No. 7. (1982)

Edmond began his career in advertising, and by the mid-fifties, he joined Bruguera. There, his initial works, aside from advertisements, were romantic stories for magazines such as Celia, As de Corazones, or Sissi, and comic adaptations of TV series like Rin-tin-tin, Bonanza, Bronco, or movies like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

In the sixties, he published his first major work framed in science fiction with scripts by Víctor Mora, Supernova. His subsequent projects included the series Fantasía S.A. for the weekly magazine Tío Vivo, scripted by Andréu Martín (known for his noir novels), and Los Titanes in the magazines Súper Sacarino and Súper Ases. In addition to some episodes in the collection Joyas Literarias Juveniles, dedicated to Rob Roy, Tom Sawyer, La capitana del Yucatán, and White Fang among others. He has been published in England (Tyler the Tamer, Adares Anglians…), France (Brigade Temporelle), Sweden, Scotland, and the Netherlands (Mimi, Sas and Lies…).

His most personal work, where Edmond is the sole creator, arrived in 1979: the adventures of the immortal Jan Europa. The series chronicles a man who fights for peace against the dangerous sect Los Iniciados Negros. Action and intriguing tales starring Jan, a hero from Cadaqués with great human values. It’s clear that he crafted it with care and passion. It has been published in Spain, France, Yugoslavia, Brazil, and Australia. Around 1983, he introduced Doctor Imposible, another of his major fantasy and adventure series.

With Bruguera’s closure in 1986 and his move to Ediciones B, he began publishing more humorous and traditional comics in youth headers: Cinemanteca, la Vida Crítica and Fede y sus colegas. He later worked in the animation sector and continued to draw comics featuring characters like the dolls Sindy and Barbie, along with many other comics for young girls in the Dutch magazine Tina.
