A Trip To The Dentist

Showing influences from all the past masters of the comic medium (Alex Toth, Milton Caniff, Will Eisner), Jordi Bernet's work really stands out in black and white. I love his full color comics also, but you can really see the spirit of the old newspaper cartoonists when you view his work with just the inks. Especially of note is his mastery of faces and subtle body language. And, though it's not represented in this short feature, he can really draw the sexy women.
The name of the book is DARK TALES (HISTORIETAS NEGRAS), but they're not all purely horror stories. Besides this humorous outing we're looking at here, there's a western, several war stories, and a sci-fi short included. Good stuff.
