Veja só o Justiceiro. 23 anos depois descubro que você afinal foi publicado na seção dos leitores da editora Abril. Não fosse uma pessoa me passar a foto eu até hoje não saberia. Por volta de 1996 desenhar para Marvel e DC era algo muito distante da realidade. O negócio era ser publicado na seção de leitores da Heróis da TV, ou na revista do Homem Aranha, Republicados pela editora Abril. Eu coloquei o desenho no correio e me esqueci afinal ele não seria publicado mesmo. Só fiquei sabendo que eu estava errado HOJE, 23 anos depois, por que um colega me enviou esta foto no Instagram. Eu não sei em que edição ele se encontra pois não me enviaram a capa. Apenas acredito que estou em uma edição juntamente com uma republicação dos Novos Mutantes do Bill Sienkiewicz. Caramba que máximo. Acredite a sensação é a mesma de se eu tivesse visto isto naquela época e é também a mesma de quando me ligam dizendo tem um trabalho da DC aqui prá você.
This week there was a sales list at the internet. I guess it was at the Bleeding Cool, the comic book news website. It was showing how the sales of the two biggest comic book publishers fell dramatically in a few years. But then I wonder how it can be? With so many TV series, with so many movies circulating in theaters and TV, would these publishers or the owners of these famous franchises, forgot the roots of where all those products/caracters came, and are now generating millions almost every month? The root of all this empire comes from years of work and dozens of people contributing to it. Whether it's writers or artists, it's all comic books.
People do not stop buying comics because of internet, video games and whatever that it is around this days. They stop buying it because its not fun anymore.You buy comics to scape from reallity for 30 or 20 minutes. Comic books, funny books, that´s what they are. It stops being fun when writer and artist start to bring their personal agenda or whatever problems to the pages. Oh, but:" hey don´t we have to portray the reality of the days we are living?"
Yeah.you can do that. If you decide to do it as an author. Will Eisner had
the perfect name for somenthing that was not supposed to be funny books
or comic books." Graphic Novels".
In there you can portray all all the mishaps of the present life that the
terrestrial civilization is living. That is the perfet medium to that.
Either writers and artists stop bringing their personal problems to the comic pages. And put aside their bloated egos of superstars and mega writers. And start working for a common good. Or else it will be the end of an era.
Now lets talk about Ruby and the warriors of Dion. As you already know we are in issue # 3. In February we will be on Kickstarter. Be there for a very cool book full of adventure, battles and fun.

In 2018 instead of waiting for agents to find me work. I decided to join people, writers and artists who could be writing or drawing for Publishers like Sergio Bonelli or Antartic Press or why not even Marvel and DC. After all ,we had artists coloring our covers that do jobs for Zenescope, Dynamite, Disney.
For those who do not know me. I even did work for publishers like IDW, Avatar press, Boom studios, DC comics, Platinum studios, Disney and ... some designs for lunchboxes for Marvel. But the years go by, I'm tired to introduce myself all the time, so I will let my work speaks for itself now. Ruby and the warriors of Dion are already in its third edition, closing a lets say season 1 and this is just the beginning.We still have Harpies, And another 2 books funded on Kikstarter. Should we talk about the magazines I worked on that turned out to be TV series or movie? Hmm ... no. That sound so arrogant in the first place and it is not my intention. What I mean is.If I was able to work in books that had the great honor to became movies and games I really wish that Ruby and the Warriors of Dion could turn out to be animated in Japan or it would become a movie or a cool game. Why not? My imagination is great, after all I write comics. :)
