Fresh Start.

manhã aquarela

New days are refreshing. New issues are refreshing. We're all starting new issues here at the studio (by studio, it's just me and my brother), and it's good to start anything as it gives us that energy of the new. It might be even better than that great feeling of job well done when you finish an issue, or a story (as put beautifully here by Becky).

We've been crazy busy, as always. Which is good, it's the best kind of busy we could possibly hope for, and we're making sure we come out of the busy period with stuff we're proud to have done.

We're thinking about the Daytripper covers, and they should be wonderfully different, that's what we think, but thinking this "different" has been giving us a hard time. We don't like anything easy, so we're getting ready for battle.

To battle!

Eisner Award nominations!!

I've been nominated for 3 Eisner Awards this year:

- Best penciler/inker
- Best cover artist(!!!!!)
- Best reprint for the big fat Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite Special Edition.

So that makes 3!

Shouts for Matt Fraction (New series), Josh Dysart (New series), James Jean (my nemesis on the covers), Dave Stewart (colors), Jill Thompson (painter), Scott and Sierra (best Anthology, inside which Fábio and I have one story each). Yeah, you too, Rantz (Anthology and Publication Design).

Mignola got 3 nominations!

Long live Cyril Pedrosa (best graphic album-new; and best writer/artist), he's soooo gooooood!

The sky will fall, for Todd Klein has not been nominated for best lettering. How long has it been?

Thanks everyone for this. I'm gonna work even harder now! I love comics!

We'd like to thank all of you who, unfortunately, fell for our April fool's joke about Casanova. Don't get me wrong, we're not sadistic heartless pricks, it's just that with that false post, we had the notion of how much love people have for Casanova, since it increased our blog visit a lot. People believed in it and hate us when they realized it wasn't true, just because they really wanted it to be true.

Just the way you all do, we love Casanova. I can speak for Matt, Fábio and myself when I say we are doing all we can to bring Casanova back the best way it deserves to come back.

And I can tell you this: It WILL come back.

Once again, thanks.

Tomorrow is now!

Finally, some comics!

Yes, we have been quiet at the blog, but only because we're so busy drawing comics. That's what is expected of us, right? So we're doing our share, and we keep the drawing board and the paper and the pages away from the computer so that, when we're drawing, everything else disappears and we can create.

So, we have created. And it's time to start showing.

New Casanova is coming. Starting tomorrow, out of the blue, we'll be starting the new story arc. IN COLOR. Yes, you read correctly. And it's going to be online, FOR FREE.


Here at the blog.

We wanted to do it over at, but that was taken. And, hey, it's the internet, so it's just a click away, no matter the url.

Matt is back, I'm back and, in time, Bá will be back too. It's going to be different and exciting. Where will you be tomorrow when it hits?
