Along with original pages from their own individual projects, Floating World will also be featuring interiors from their recent collaboration Pixu.”

“Fabio is an extraordinary artist…” – Joss Whedon

“Visually [Rafael Grampá] may be the most accomplished new cartoonist of the past two or three years.” – The Comics Journal

Oi Grampá!
Lamentavelmente, perdi o lançamento do Mesmo Delivery em Poa porque estava muito doente. Mas o evento da Feira do Livro não perderei! Tu vais trazer exemplares de “5” para os aflitos? :)
beijos

Hey Rafael,
I bought Mesmo Delivery when it first came out and Gunned Down just for your segment, and I’ve got to say, I really love your work. I’d really like to get my hands on a copy of 5, is there any way to do this?
Thanks,
-Liam
