Round Midnight


In 2008, Fred Jourdain worked on the first volume of the Front, published by Front Froid. He created ''Round' Midnight'', a black and white 13-page story. The following year, he illustrated the cover of the Front #2 with ''Rooftop Inspiration'', a nod to Huck, the main character from ''Round' Midnight''.

Storyline

 

''Round Midnight'' is the story of Chet, a New York detective of the 1940s. Filled with debts, he accepts one last assignment before leaving the city and its coldness to go south and start a new life. Hired by a wealthy businessman to find his son Tom, who suddenly disappeared, he will be forced against his will to conduct its investigation with the young Huck, orphan and good friend of Tom.

 

Concept

 

Once a year, Front Froid publishes a comic book consisting of five different stories from various artists. The works are selected by the members of Front Froid, and must be associated to a genre (western, science-fiction, detective fiction, etc.).

 

Digigraphies

 

A limited series of Digigraphies have been created from this work, which can be seen here.
