They were two of Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 stars to watch. They've won multiple Eisners and have worked with the top names of comics and pop culture from Joss Whedon (Sugar Shock) and Mike Mignola (BPRD: 1947) to Gerard Way (Umbrella Academy) and Matt Fraction (Casanova).Now, Brazilian wonder twins Fbio Moon and Gabriel B are back writing and drawing in a hauntingly lyrical series set in their native Brazil.

    This isnt a book with a snappy concept or an easily marketable premise. Instead, it looks like its going to be a relatively quiet, contemplative series that muses on the smaller details and greater meaning of life, with the story of this opening issue given extra impetus by the knowledge that death might be just around the corner. I look forward to seeing where Fbio Moon and Gabriel B take the series in issue #2 (will look at other scenes from Brss life, or will the book concentrate on other characters?), and what ideas they choose to explore next.
