A showcase of innovative Brazilian comics, curated by acclaimed artist Rafael Gramp 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 Gramp (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, J ssica Groke, Sirlene Barbosa, Jo o 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.
