A BRAZILIAN COMICS SHORT STORY
Although born in Italy, Angelo Agostini can be considered the first Brazilian comics artist. After making illustrations and caricatures for magazines like Diabo Coxo, Cabriao and Revista Arlequim, Agostini produced a continuing story in images for Vida Fuminense in 1869. The comic was called 'As Aventuras de Nho Quim, ou Impressoes de Uma Viagem a Corte' and ran for nine episodes of two pages each. For Revista Illustrada he continued with 'As Aventura de Ze Caipora' in 1883. Although this comic was often interrupted, the series counts 35 episodes. In the early twentieth century appeared the O Tico-Tico magazine, for which Agostini illustrated the title. Since 1982 his name is used as the more important prize of the brazilian Comics.

(18/6/1884 - 2/10/1950)
J. Carlos, short for Jose Carlos de Brito e Cunha, is often considered Brazil's best comics artist from the early twentieth century. A self-taught artist, J. Carlos began his professional career in magazine O Tagarela on 23 August, 1902. Soon, he was active for almost every illustrated magazine of the time, like A Avenida, O Malho, and Para Todos. With his limpid style, he deviated from the traditional drawing styles. It was the magazine of Careta, for which Carlos worked until his death in 1950.
During his career, he created such typical Rio de Janeiro characters as ''Almofadinha and ''Melindrosa''. He portrayed the carnival, beaches, fashion and all the Brazilian customs of the time. For the juvenile magazines he created the characters of Juquinha and the little girl Lamparina. During World War II he developed a parrot with typical Brazilian manners, that inspired Walt Disney to create ''Ze Carioca''. It didn''t come to a further collaboration with Disney, but Ze Carioca remains in Disney''s line of characters until the present day.

BRAZILIAN ARTISTS PUBLISHING OUTSIDE
As Mozart Couto (Humanoides Associes), Sergio Macedo (Metal Hurlant), Watson Portela and Arthur Garcia, many artists became USA comics creators as Roger Cruz and Mike Deodato Jr that have drew Hulk and Wonder Woman and also published an Coomic Book Art with drawings in pen and ink over pencil. Maybe the future of the Comics in Brasil will depend on if we, foreign artists, publish or not in USA...
