Two of my favorite writers and illustrators Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá, who are not only siblings but also are Eisner Award winners, have announced a new graphic novel coming to Dark Horse Comics. Here’s the official press release:
Dark Horse is proud to announce Two Brothers, the latest collaboration between Brazilian siblings Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá. Guaranteed to delight and astound, Two Brothers gives readers a deeply moving reading experience in the spirit of the twins’ previous books De:Tales and Daytripper.
Twin brothers Omar and Yaqub may share the same features, but they could not be more different from one another. And the possessive love of their mother, Zana, stirs the troubled waters between them even more. After a brutally violent exchange between the young boys, Yaqub, “the good son,” is sent from his home in Brazil to live with relatives in Lebanon, only to return five years later as a virtual stranger to the parents who bore him, his tensions with Omar unchanged. Family secrets engage the reader in this profoundly resonant story about identity, love, loss, deception, and the dissolution of blood ties.
Set in the port city of Manaus on the riverbanks of the Amazon, Two Brothers celebrates the vibrant life and diversity of Brazil. Based on a work by the acclaimed novelist Milton Hatoum, Two Brothers is stunningly reimagined by the award-winning graphic novelists Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá.
Everything these guys have done has been amazing thus far. I’m very excited for this new graphic novel to come out.
Two Brothers goes on sale Oct. 27 but is available for pre order on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, IndieBound, or at your local comic shop.
