O Inominável Homem-Sapo II
This comic was published in the October issue of CAIS magazine. It was scripted by André Oliveira and the art was by myself.
Saturday, October 26, 2013
De acordo com Geraldes Lino, editor do fanzine, o lançamento do zine está marcado para o dia 2 de Novembro, às 17h, no Fórum Luís de Camões, na Brandoa, no decorrer do Festival Internacional de BD da Amadora 2013.
Here's a teaser for the one page comic I did for the fanzine Efemérides #6, the first of four volumes under the theme "comic book heroes in the 21st century". For this first volume, I re-imagined the character of Conan, the barbarian, in our current century. Any similarity to reality is mere coincidence...
According to Geraldes Lino, the fanzine's editor, the zine will be officially released on the 2nd of November, at 5pm, at the Forum Luís de Camões, on Brandoa, during the comics International Festival of Amadora 2013.

THE MIGHTY ENLIL in print at AMAZON!
Finally, my webcomic, THE MIGHTY ENLIL is available in print at Amazon.
Epic battles, sibling rivalry, time-travel, love and jealousy on a mighty scale—this is the realm of The Mighty Enlil. Nominated for best national webcomic of Portugal and highlighted at the PPBD2013 expo on the 9th Festival Internacional de Banda Desenhada de Beja, THE MIGHTY ENLIL is the graphic storytelling brainchild of Portuguese artist and teacher Pedro Cruz. Redbud Studio is proud to present Pedro’s creation in print for the first time ever.
Os leitores portugueses podem comprar-me directamente o livro. Os interessados podem entrar em contacto comigo através do email pedrocruzcomics at gmail.com

In the meantime...
In the meantime, here's a photo I found online from the Prémios Profissionais de BD 2013 showing a couple of Enlil's pages that were present when the awards giving ceremony took place. The picture is from Nuno Amado's blog.

The making of The Mighty Enlil cover - The color sketch
After the line sketch was done, I did another colored version in order to have a proper idea of how the cover would look like.

The Mighty Enlil - lost page 01
On the following weeks I'll be sharing a few unfinished pages that were originally intended to be part of The Mighty Enlil webcomic. At a certain point in the story I thought of just having Enlil wander around the big city looking at the brave new world of the 21st century for awhile . These pages featured some of the best art in the comic (imho) but upon reflection it became apparent to me that while they might have worked in book form, their contemplative nature would quickly deprive the weekly webcomic of its momentum. So I decided to cut these pages out of the webcomic and move the narrative full steam ahead. Now that the story is over, I've decided to post the pages here as a sort of addendum. Think of it as a kind of "DVD extra" and enjoy the pages for what they are!

The Mighty Enlil went to Beja ...
André Oliveira asked me to supply a couple of pages from The Mighty Enlil for the PPBD2013 expo at the 9th Festival Internacionalde Banda Desenhada de Beja. The event took place between the 1st and 16th of June and I managed to make a brief visit to the expo on its final weekend.
Here’s a few photos . Guess who's posing between those pages?

The Mighty Enlil - afterword
No work is ever created on a vacuum. I'd like to make some special extra thanks to :
- Ron Fortier for being Enlil's #1 fan;
- Brant Fowler, the team of Zone 4 and everyone at comicrelated for their incredible support and for having included Enlil on their evergrowing site;
- Geraldes Lino for enthusiastically spotlighting my work on his blog;
- André Oliveira and everyone at the Prémios Profissionais de Banda Desenhada 2013 for Enlil's nomination for best national webcomic and also for taking the time and care to include Enlil pages at the PPBD2013 expo on the 9th Festival Internacional de Banda Desenhada de Beja;
- Pepedelrey for some harsh but helpful critics on my previous comics;
- Finally, last but not least, to my family and close friends. You know who you are and without your love and support none of this would make sense.
