I’ve been having some interesting dreams. A lot of cliffs and sea shores, a lot of dark and mysterious parking lots, and a lot of strange and exotic hotels. In these dreams, I’ve met people I know in real life, people I don’t ( or even can’t in case they’re dead) and a lot of imaginary characters from my imagination, and some from others. It’s nice to meet a character from a book you read in your dreams, and it’s fascinating to see two actresses swimming on the still waters of the sea shore, by some cool looking rocks, discussing how they never thought they would act together, playing the same character in two different ages.
There was a seductive quality to the fabric of these dreams of late, and it left me wondering how to replicate such fabric in a comic book. Maybe it’s the mix of raw honesty you find in dreams, when people say what you think and know how you feel, and the surreal quality of this imaginary world.

In June 2016, Dark Horse will publish our graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaiman's short story How to Talk to Girls at Parties. The books has just been announced by Publisher's Weekly.
On Neil Gaiman's words, “they have a storytelling aesthetic where [depicting] body language is everything. The story is all about what’s in the narrators’ heads, so it can be very hard to do that in comics. It’s incredibly enjoyable to write a story and see them make it real.”
We've been working on this book since last year and we couldn't be happier with it.

Eighteen years ago, Fábio and I went to our first San Diego Comic Con International. It changed our lives. All those comics, creators, publishers. All our idols. One in particular had – and still has – a major impact on our careers: Frank Miller. That year, he gave a very inspiring opening speech at the Eisner Awards that we will never forget. And among other things, he did a signing session, to which I gladly waited in line. And with all my courage at the time, I told him I had come all the way from Brazil and asked if I could take a picture with him. It was the first time I stood so close to him, he was taller than me. In fact, he was a giant.
That seed that was planted back in 1997 has grown. We have a career in comics, we have our work. We've been back to SDCC 17 times, almost every year, and met with Frank Miller on few other occasions. None with such an impact as that first one. Until now.
Unbelievably enough, Frank Miller came to Brazil, came to São Paulo, our city, as guest of honor of Comic Con Experience, a very big convention here. He came to promote Dark Knight III. He made lots of fans very, very happy. One of them, of course, was me.
We were incredibly honoured to have Frank Miller visit our studio, we showed him a little of our work, our comics, our life. And after 4 days, with all the courage I had inside of me, I asked for another picture. One that will change my life the same way as that first one did.
Eighteen years ago, I was 21 years old and Frank Miller was 40. I am 39 years old today, and I'm meeting new creators that are 21, 20 or younger. I can't tell what the future brings, but I have faith that the next eighteen years are going to be awesome.
