Professional History

Fernando Fernandez (born 1940) is a Spanish comic book artist who worked for Warren from 1973 to 1975.

Biography

Fernandez was born in Barcelona, Spain in 1940. In 1956 Fernandez joined the well known Spanish agency Selecciones Illustradas, at the age of 16. From 1958 through 1964 Fernandez worked on war comics (including Air Ace and War Picture Library) and romance comics (including Valentine, Roxy and Marilyn) for British publishers. He also paintedcovers for paperbacks and picture libraries like Commando and Chiller. Fernandez left the comics industry for a period of time in the 1960s, returning in 1970. He drew the strip Mosca from 1970 to 1973.

Fernandez started working for Warren Publishing in 1973 due to his connections with Selecciones Illustradas. Unlike many of the Spanish artists from S.I., Fernandez both wrote and drew his stories. During his period with Warren from 1973 to 1975 a total of 11 of these stories were made, all of which were published in Vampirella (issues 28-32,35-6,40-3). The story Rendezvous (issue 35) was included in a list of the top 25 Warren stories of all time in the book The Warren Companion by author David A. Roach. Fernandez won a Warren Award in 1975 for Best Artist/Writer on the story Goodbye My Love, Goodbye (issue 41). An additional story written by Fernandez, but drawn by Jose Miralles appeared in issue 57 of Vampirella in 1977. Warren would later reprint three additional Fernandez stories originally done in Spain in Eerie in 1978 (issue 94), 1980 (issue 117) and 1981 (issue 118).

After Warren, Fernandez worked on french educational comics for Afha as well as the Cuando el Comic es Arte series for Jose Toutain. He also worked on the series Circulos in 1979 and Zora y los Hibernautas in 1980, which would later be reprinted in the U.S. in the magazine Heavy Metal. In 1982 he drew the comic version of Bram Stoker's Dracula for the Spanish edition of Creepy.[1] He adapted Isaac Asimov stories in 1983 for the book Firmado por: Isaac Asimov, and collaborated with Carlos Trillo to create the medieval fantasy La Leyenda de las Cuatro Sombras for Zona 84.

He would later adapt Asimov again with Lucky Star in 1989. Fernandez eventually left the comics field in the 1990s to focus exclusively on painting.
