Quickies #42

Doomer in Mexican art magazine inkult #13

Fabiano Neves draws new Robocop cover

The Mauricio de Sousa and Osamu Tezuka crossover I mentioned here will be about the Amazon forest and should be released in february, 2012.

Bleeding Cool noticed that the FIQ (Internation Comic Book Festival) attended more people than the San Diego Comic-Con. In a Blog dos Quadrinhos post, Paulo Ramos stated that, on one hand, the entrance to the FIQ was free, while in San Diego it was paid; on the other hand, the USA has a much more solid comics market than Brazil's. Afonso Andrade, this year's FIQ's coordinator, said that "Comparisons are hard and dangerous. They're quite different events."

Brazilian Osamu Tezuka fans chose tomorrow, december 17, to celebrate Tezuka Day. Tezuka fans all over the world are invited to participate. You can check it out on twitter or facebook.

Quickies #41

Little Heroes, a little homage to American superheroes by Estevão Ribeiro and several artists, will be published in print in the US by 215 Ink very soon. Instead of a single album, it'll be a short series, and that means more covers. A digital version is already available for sale here. The first album (or short series) is more DCish, but they're already working on a second and more marvelish one.

I thought you'd like to know that Brazil has yet ANOTHER pair of twin comic artists, Marcelo Costa and Magno Costa. They just released Matinê and Oeste Vermelho is coming out of the oven. And they have a Flickr.

Wilson Vieira and Daniel Brandão just published a short story called Il Pizzo (The Extorsion) in the Italian magazine Walhalla

Daytripper is among Library Journal's top ten 2011 graphic novels. Twitted by Gabriel Bá.

BDLP is a fanzine gathering lusophone comic artists and writers, that is Angolan, Brazilian and Portuguese.
