A showcase of innovative Brazilian comics, curated by
acclaimed artist Rafael Grampá and comics editor
Janaina de Luna.
American audiences have grown familiar with international comix through
an influx of European bande dessinee and Japanese manga that has been
translated into English over the past two decades. But there are vivacious
creative scenes happening worldwide, notably in Brazil, the largest country
in South America and fifth-largest country in the world. Braba aims to rectify
this cultural blind spot with a single-volume showcase of innovative Brazilian
comics, expertly curated by acclaimed cartoonist Rafael Grampá (Batman:
Gargoyle of Gotham) and respected Brazilian comics editor Janaina de Luna.
Produced by Fantagraphics in collaboration with Brazilian publisher MINO,
this extraordinary collection of 13 short stories created by 16 pioneering
Brazilian cartoonists encapsulates a thriving and thrilling comics scene.
Braba unites a diverse array of voices and styles under a unifying theme:
deeply personal stories from experimental cartoonists. Each artist's unique vision
with their stylized short stories contribute to the rich cultural tapestry of Brazilian
comics. The contributors to Braba include Amanda Miranda, Bruno Seelig, Diego
Sanchez, Gabriel Goes, Jefferson Costa, Jéssica Groke, Sirlene Barbosa, João
Pinheiro, Cris Eiko, Paulo Crumbim, Pedro Cobiaco, Pedro Franz, Rafael Coutinho,
Shiko, and Wagner Willian.
The term "braba," a Brazilian slang derived from "brava" meaning angry, has
been embraced as a symbol of something impressive and groundbreaking. Originating
from Brazil's edgy youth culture, the term is a compliment for individuals
who exhibit unique and daring attitudes - an attitude exemplified by the bold and
vibrant comics in this anthology.
