Image of De: Tales - Stories from Urban Brazil

This truly wonderful work is made up of beautiful sketches and sparse, yet profound, dialogue that begs readers to deconstruct the text and find their own meanings behind the stories. At times self-reflexive and yet almost always universal in its scope, this graphic novel will both amuse readers and make them think.

Set in Sao Paulo, Brazil, this collection of short stories follows author/illustrator brothers Gabriel and Fabio as well as their friends as each character navigates their way through the streets of this magical city where just about anything can happen. (Dark Horse, Oct., 112 pp., $19.99, Graphic Novel, ISBN: 1595825576) *Web Exclusive Review*
