Quickies #35

9/11 flash expo by Brazilian cartoonists

Gabriel Bá draws Casanova: Avaritia

Turma da Mônica Jovem was mentioned in the polemic about Justice League #1. Case you don't know, DC was telling everyone that that magazine was the best selling comic of the year, with 200,000 copies. Teen Monica's Gang #34 sold 500,000 copies.

Now we have Mónica Jóven (in Spanish) and Teen Monica (in English) (seen here and here). Those comics will be sold in Brazil, with a new issue every three months, aimed at language students (but telling your comic shop to import some would be a nice idea). The first issues in Spanish and English match the fifth issue in Portuguese.

Greg Tocchini will be in Rouen, France, this wednesday, giving autographs

You know, the main goal of this blog is to make scanlations of Brazilian comics (at least in theory), but it's also interesting to talk about Brazilian webcomics already available in English. So I try to read every one that I find, even if it's a piece of shit.

Ezquizofrenia, by Bruno L. Ferreira and Wagner Gomes, is some sort of mutant, super-hero, nationalist, demons and angels comic. Not only are the script and artwork quite lame, but the translation and the page turning are terribly painful.

It could be interesting as a webcomic experiment, but it's not. Doesn't matter how much the authors brag about how badass and professional they are, it won't come true.

It only goes up to the fourth issue. Guess they gave up. Phew!

Don't read it here.

El Chavo del ocho is a Mexican TV show that started in the 70's, quite popular in Brazil. They also made comic books based on the series, and that allows me to post it here. In 2008, guys from the Brazilian TV show Pânico met Quico (Carlos Villagrán) and gave him a square ball. In 2010, they gave 14 months of rent to Señor Barriga (Édgar Vivar).

The Amy a Mil Traços exhibit in São Paulo, a tribute to Amy Winehouse.

There's this badass mustache rock band called Black Drawing Chalks. They're also graphic artists, so we got the videoclip below. You can download some of their music here and here.
