Fabio MOON / Gabriel BA / Translation: SHIINA Yukari [Brazil / Japan]
Created by two Brazilian artist brothers, this work is an American comic which received high appraisal when it was published as a book in 2011. It tells the story of Brás de Oliva DOMINGOS, an obituary writer for a newspaper who, while recording the lives and deaths of ordinary people on a daily basis, comes himself to face death in various forms. It is a moving work in which, through Brás’s life and death, the most important “something” in life is revealed.
