Happy together around the world.

Quase Nada 121

After our great time in San Diego this year, crowned by the Eisner Award we received for Daytripper, we returned filled with the creative energy contained in all works of love, and it was great to come back home with that feeling that the stories we tell are being read. We had a great time inside the convention on our super booth with the always great company of our talented booth babes - Becky Cloonan and Jill Thompson - and our faithful and hilarious brazilian companions Rafael Albuquerque, Gustavo Duarte and Marcelo Braga.

Outside the convention, the great hang out place and creative outlet was of course the Tr!ckster store and bar, where the new generations met the old, where comics were praised, studied and respected, and where we created art in all its forms. In all our 15 years of SDCC, it's always this kind of energy that keeps us coming back, and this time the Tr!ckster was the place to find that energy - and to pass it around.

Back in Brazil, there's always a lot to do, and right now the final preparations for the release of the brazilian edition of Daytripper are being made, but already we are on a new trip - to AFRICA. We're in Luanda right now, capital of Angola, as guests of Luanda Cartoon, an international comics, animation and cartoon festival, and it's great to see how our work is understood in other portuguese-speaking countries. We crossed the Atlantic and yet, here we feel somewhat at home, sharing the same dreams, the same inspiration and the same difficulties. We still have some days here in Angola, let's see what else we can discover as every day here is an adventure.

In the end, every day can be an adventure, no matter where you are, if you have the spirit and the heart for it.

Hey guys! Just wanted to comment and say congrats on your Eisner Award, very well deserved. After much praise from many friends, I decided to read Daytripper just earlier this week -- and it blew me away!

As an artist and as a writer, hoping to one day work in the comics industry myself, you two inspire me beyond words. Thank you so much for your work.

Best wishes,
- David Rose

Uggs outlet,
uggfromau.com,is tend to enlighten ladies how to keep their feet beautiful in winter besides they weare ugg boots to keep feet dry and warm yet. In some areas,such as nyc in united states,toronto in canada,it is very necessary for ladies to keep their feet warm and cozy first. Uggs outlet focus on this but the other feature of the uggs outlet is let every ladies wearing ugg boots beautiful in winter also. With this combination of warming and cooling, the Ugg boot is the perfect boot for all occasions. Add to this fact that the sheepskin material used to make this boot is generally more comfortable than the standard leather used to make the common boot, and you have a warm and comfortable boot for all seasons.

Absolutely loved Daytripper. I bought the first issue when it first came out based on a preview I read and loved every page of it. Made me tear multiple times. I eagerly awaited the next issue, and then the trade. Any chance for a hardcover so that I can buy the series for a third time?
