The Mask of White Death
This suspense is a retelling of an old northeastern legend. With script Alexey Dodsworthart Isaac Sagara and cover David Oliveira, the whole plot is historically based and tells how the Portuguese Branca Dias was the heroine of the Jewish people in the colonial period, the haunting of current times.
Known in the horror stories of Pernambuco, the legend of Açude do Prata has historical roots in the difficulties that the Jewish people faced during the Iberian inquisition. According to the legend, on moonlit nights it is possible to see the ghost of a woman who washes silverware in a Pernambuco weir. This woman is Branca Dias, a Portuguese Jew who, after spending two years in prison by the Inquisition, fled to Brazil. Your spirit cannot rest in peace as long as there is persecution and injustice. Inspired by the mythology of Edgar Allan Poe, the classic legend is reconstructed and adapted to the current times and problems.

Steampunk Ladies – Shock of the Future
The story takes place shortly after the events of Steampunk Ladies: Steam Revenge, winner of the trophies HQMIX and Angelo Agostini. With script Zé Wellington, Drawings of Sara Prado, Wilton Santos and Leonardo Pinheiro, colors of Ellis Carlos, Ale Starling and Thyago Brandão and letters and graphics of Deyvison Manes.
In a past where technology has evolved far beyond that of our reality from steam engines, 19th century England has become the center of the planet’s great inventions. Out of the head of the same inventor, these revolutionary designs have been used in a British campaign to bring the rest of the world to its knees.
As the only resistant opposition force, a group of suffragettes will count on the help of Sue and Rabiosa, two newly arrived women from America. They came to settle accounts with the British prime minister and a mysterious group whose activities are global. For these women, overcoming authoritarianism is also overcoming the barriers that separate them from their rights.

Vikings – Death to the Troll
Written by Eduardo Kasse (The Shadowwalker, The Scarlet Web) and designed by Carlos Sekko (Space Opera in Comics). In the plot, a group of warriors formed by Hróaldr, Boors and One-Eye will face several battles to find a creature that seems to be attacking the inhabitants of a village.
The graphic novel expands the universe created by Kasse in the book Vikings – Berserk and reveals a new adventure of the characters that starred in the comic Vikings – Night in Valhalla, which also features the fierce art of Carlos Sekko. However, both the new publication and these two previous ones can be read in any order, as they do not offer spoilers or build a complex chronology to understand the plot.
Another striking feature of this publication is the care with historical research, both in chronological, geographical and environmental terms. Script and illustrations seek veracity in order to immerse the reader in this fascinating time.

Opticus – Interventions
On this album, the screenwriter Tiago P. Zanetic (The Yellow King) and the designer Mauricio Leone (Green Hornet, The Last Phantom, Evil Ernie), in the colors of Rodrigo Fernandes (Red Sonja, The Shadow, Doctor Who), tell Dr. Théo what happens after an experimental surgical intervention in his eyes. The problem is that he starts to see beyond what a human being should be capable of, being able to observe microorganisms, bacteria and even the strings of reality! These lines that separate the different versions of the universe prove to be a wonderful and at the same time dangerous sight, as he will discover when saving the life of a little girl from a creature called Collector. Imagine a Brazilian Bill Murray living interdimensional adventures.
To close the album, Zanetic joins the artist Gustavo Lambreta (Strict Suit) to tell a story that happens before the great plot of the album and reveals a little more about the different dimensions of this fantastic universe.
