Example text

The number of characters increases any time Maurício (as he is called even by his employees) either imagines a new character, or receives a “suggestion” from a real-life person or situation that makes its way into the set of characters in the magazine. Another factor that makes De Sousa’s work especially interesting in the Brazilian comic context is that, unlike other creators, De Sousa has managed to create and maintain the uninterrupted publication of his magazines since 1970, when the first Mônica e sua Turma was published.

He started undeniably as a ‘roto fatal’ (working-class guy with bad luck)” (number 32, 1970). The roto fatal expression alludes simultaneously to his social standing and to its quality as a likable loser. Its very first story is clearly symptomatic of such qualities and social position: after a week of hunger, the penniless Condorito steals a hen. Unable to kill the animal—he lacks the guts or is too compassionate—Condorito is caught by a policeman who, after putting him in jail, proceeds to cook and eat the bird.

One of them is that Maurício de Sousa is the creator of not just one or even of a group of characters. He has created a series of different characters living in different places (some even “live” in a cemetery—the main character is Penadinho, a little ghost) MÔNICA POWER 21 or different times (one of his most beloved characters is a dinosaur called Horácio). The number of characters increases any time Maurício (as he is called even by his employees) either imagines a new character, or receives a “suggestion” from a real-life person or situation that makes its way into the set of characters in the magazine.
