Quickies #39

A BDjornaleco (a tiny special issue of BDjornal) about Spacca has been released in Portugal

João Henrique Lopes de Souza's Elements of Manga Style has ben released in English

The Nix Side is a new webseries about a girl that works in a comic shop. She wants to be a comic artist, as her father had been, but there's this big comics company owner who's a bad guy, and the series is full of pop/nerd culture references, etc. As far as I've seen, it has some good moments. And the chicks are cute. So far, there are 4 chapters, 6 minutes long each. The translation seems pretty good.

Daniel HDR released his new sketchbook

We're having tons of releases at the Belo Horizonte International Comics Festival. Usually, I only tell you about those that may be of more immediate interest to the international community, but I gotta make an exception. Mauricio de Sousa announced a new line of Monica's Gang graphic novels.

Quickies #38

Ricardo Manhães is drawing Socialos, a parody of the French Socialist Party, written by Olivier Petit. It'll be published in April, during the elections.

A full page of the New York Times' International Herald Tribune about José Mojica Marins and/or Coffin Joe. I heard about it here.

Portuguese BDjornal publishes the first pages of Julio Shimamoto's Musashi

Will Conrad draws X-Men

Vidas Imperfeitas will be published in the US by Fitztown (Imperfect Lives?). I've been reading that comic and what I can say is, although that's Mary Cagnin first real work, with all that implies, she's got quite a lot of potential. For now, you can check out her DevianART and the comic in Portuguese.
