Comic Strips for those who want to learn Portuguese
Often I read people asking about comics in portuguese (br). There are some sites and pages I know with a lot of amazing strips! :)
http://www.umsabadoqualquer.com/ (about Gods, Satan and religion in a funnish way, I love those!)
http://vidadesuporte.com.br/ (IT people!)
http://filhodofreud.tumblr.com/ (The traumatic adventures of Freud's son!)
I'll edit the post when I remember another ones.
Three lingots for you because you mentioned Um Sábado Qualquer. Consider this as my tithe (dízimo) hahahaha
Hahahaha você é um fã de "Um sábado qualquer"? :P Muito obrigada pelo dízimo, amém!
These specific artists are brazilian. But usually I search for facebook pages about comics. What language do you want? I know Mafalda (in spanish), Liniers (spanish) and El Espíritu de los Cínicos (spanish ahahah) and some sites in dutch but no specific artist.
obrigada!! these comics are really fun!! great way to improve my portuguese :)
There seem to be lots of cartoonists called Maurício. :-)
One of the most famous cartoonists in Brazil is Mauricio de Sousa the creator of several popular comic books for children. His most well known creation is Turma da Mônica.
Another Maurício, Maurício Ricardo, produces political/satirical cartoons (called "charges" in Portuguese). These are not the single frame cartoons we are used to seeing in newspapers (the literal meaning of "charges" I believe), they are short animations complete with audio (and optionally, subtitles). They use vernacular language and refer to events and people in Brazilian political life and culture so they are not easy to fully comprehend as a foreigner. Nevertheless, they could help you with your language study.
