2010

2010 has been an amazing year for us. It's really awesome to see how much has changed in the last 10 years of our career, everything we have accomplished. Also, how the comic book world has changed in that time. We're feeling really good about comics right now, about our profession, our market, our peers, and it's a heart warming sensation to realize we are part of all this process of changes.
2010 can't really be summed up on a list, but here we go:

- Daytripper is a reality. One that we are really proud of, one that shows what we really want to do with comic books.
We couldn't be happier and it's still calling the attention of everyone on several "best of 2010" lists (When Words Collide, Weekly Crisis, TIME and MTV Geek for example). If more people end up reading it because of these lists, we'll be more than happy. I can't wait for the collected edition to come out next February.
- Casanova is getting the chance to freak out more people through ICON now, in amazing full color and skillful hand-lettered glamour.
- We have been to several conventions and fairs all over the place. Beja, Porto, London, San Diego, La Paz, Rosário, New York and Rio. It's always incredible to get in touch with our readers, meet new authors, see the how different the world can be and how much the alike we all are.

2010 was good for a lot of my friends too. Everyone is doing good. Comics are good, people. Let's make them better!

It's a long process in the making and it's far from being over. And that's the best part of it.

One of the best things of 2010 for me was to meet you guys at the NY Comic Con. You have become in such an inspiration for me. I don't know if you're aware of what your art can provoke in the readers, but for me reading Atelier, The Tales, Pixu or Daytripper, it really blew my brain and changed lots of things in my mind. And without exaggeration, I really feel that I love you guys and I love your head and hands haha, and please don't freak out if some day a silly girl hugs you both tight, that's gonna be me! :D

thank you, and congrats!!

Great stuff guys, loved picking up Daytripper every month before moving to Sao Paulo. Will have to pick up the last few issues sometime. Outside of Comix (dug picking up Atelier there), are there any other good comic bookstores here?
