Is this the first splash of a new wave of Brazillian comics? We can't pretend to know, but are grateful to the folks at Dark Horse for going out of their way to bring us these sharply drawn tales from the other side of the equator. Moon and Bá's work here is strong and can easily stand the test of comparison with any of it's North Amerian contemporaries, with whose work they are clearly familiar (Moon's work shows -- in places -- strong traces of Paul Pope influence). It's great to get this chance to compare our respective urban youth cultures. Perhaps the most interesting thing about this 112-page collection is that it reveals that the similarities are so much more in evidence than the differences.
