On the preface of Bá and Moon's O Girassol e a Lua (The Sunflower and the Moon), Laerte says that Brazil is the country with the highest concentration of twin graphic artists: Bá and Moon and the Caruso brothers. Well, he forgot to mention the Pandolfo brothers. Now the Jesus Vignolli brothers come to add to that (even though I don't know of they're twins).
Their Friday Comics don't come out every friday, as the name suggests. They make mostly subtle short stories. My favorites are Light & Shadow and Modern Heroes, with good storytelling and meaningful use of colors; Natal, boring story, but with a very interesting reinterpretation of Jesus' birth with northeastern Brazilian themes; and The witch of lakemba, strips always starting with the same panel.
