In 2013, a Mauricio de Souza Productions released a new series of Brazil´s most famous comic book: Monica. The idea was to let new artists interpret the characters with creative freedom, and direct them to an older audience. The Graphic MSP series is an absolute success, both in sales and in quality of work, and the books have been sold in Germany, France, Italy and Spain. These are some pages of the fouth book, Piteco – Inga, by Shiko.
So my friend Paulo Cecconi has set up a tumblr to showcase the art of Brazilian comic artists, and he’s opening with the art from OGN “Piteco - Ingá”, by Chico Shiko, whose work is ah-mazing. Take a look, you’ll be glad you did!
