Cassaro sues Pereira

I was gonna make this part of a Quickies, but it grew too big. Marcelo Cassaro (main writer of Holy Avenger) and Petra Leão (writer of a couple special issues of HA) sued José Roberto Pereira (writer of the first issues of The New Adventures of Mega Man) for calumny and defamation. Those are the only BR comics being scanlated nowadays, what about that!

It was hard to research, the press ignored it, Cassaro made no mention of it. In his incredibly dull podcast, Pereira says that the swollen-faced Cassaro sued him out of envy of his work. This month, they agreed that Pereira would have to do some community work.

I had to dig deeper. The post that started the process has been deleted, but comments were that it was badly written, antiethical, not a critic to Cassaro's work, but full of personal offenses.

It's not the first time he gets sued for that. Check out his blog's title and subtitle: OBSCURE WORLD: ONLY TRUTH INSULTS. "You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life." - Winston Churchill.

I couldn't make my mind about him. Although he seems to be a complete moron, from what I've heard of his podcast, he does have a few very intelligent and polemic opinions in some points.

To be fair, Cassaro can be quite an asshole in his formspring sometimes.
