In 2029, despite the desperate attempts by scientists and world governments to avoid a collision, a giant asteroid crashes onto Earth, irremediably altering the planet's climatic and geological status. The Sun is blotted out and the Earth is shrouded in perennial night. This is the beginning of the "Great Darkness", a prolonged period of decadence and barbarity, dominated by anarchy and a climate of unspeakable violence. It is in this post-apocalyptic and medievalizing scenario that we find Brendon D'Arkness, the protagonist of a new series created by the script-writer Claudio Chiaverotti. Brendon lives in Nuova Cornovaglia, in a decrepit ancient mansion enlivened only by the presence of Christopher, a sort of puppet powered by solar energy, the final legacy of the Old Era. Having grown up sheltered under the wing of a master weapons instructor, Brendon becomes a knight errant, a mercenary who sells his skills to anyone who demands his services. Yet although he has embraced this disagreeable trade, he still retains a considerable measure of humane compassion, which always compels him to side with the weak and the underdog. He is a free wild spirit, crepuscular but not devoid of irony. A hero who fights against the monsters generated by the sleep of reason, in a world that seeks to rise from the ashes of the old world, yet cannot free itself from its own ghosts.

THE CREATOR OF BRENDON
A short biography of Claudio Chiaverotti
 
CLAUDIO CHIAVEROTTI was born on 20th June,1965, in Turin where he lives
and works. He came to the comic-strip after a rather troubled period. At first he studied to be a dental technician, then he enrolled in the Faculty of Law. It was in 1986 that he entered the world of fantasy, writing the scripts for  
Bonvi's "Sturmtruppen". He began to work for Sergio Bonelli in 1989, making his début with album no.34 of Dylan Dog, "Il buio". An author of considerable depth, for a long time he took over from Tiziano Sclavi in producing the Investigator from Hell stories. He also contributed to Martin Mystère and X Zone, later inventing his own character, Brendon, a knight errant set in a world devastated by a dreadful disaster which happened more than a hundred years ago, an event which is hinted at by the term "Great Dark Age".
