In an effort to solve some of our planet’s mysteries, my half-sister and brilliant scientist Guadalupé and I travel the globe. Our adventures are thrilling and sometimes quite out of this world. We aren’t your run-of-the-mill investigators. My name is Jimmy Tornado. I’m 15 years old and I’m a gorilla… DEAL WITH IT!


Frédéric Antoine, author

Frédéric Antoine spent his childhood with his nose buried in comic books. Later he discovered role-playing games, giving him a chance to exercise his talent as a storyteller. A fan of films, travel and games, Frédéric continues to build his world, with his own brand of humour. After living in France, Africa and Martinique, Frédéric finally settled in Canada almost 20 years ago.

Jean-François Vachon, illustrator

A talented illustrator, Jean-François Vachon has been plying his art for over 30 years. Very early on, he dreamed of creating superhero comic books. He discovered American and European comic books, which helped forge his style.
