The first kuš! title of the year is out and it bring us to Portugal.
š! #20 'Desassossego' includes a wide selection of alternative comics by Portuguese artists. Some of them are already internationally well known, but as usual, we are happy to feature also a lot of new discoveries. The theme 'Desassossego' is inspired by Fernando Pessoa's book "Livro do Desassossego". "Desassossego" means disquiet, and the contributing artists provided comics loosely based on disquietness. Pessoa is one of the most significant literary figures of the 20th century, but this issue shows that Portugal is not only a land of literary greats, but it is also the home of many magnificent visual poets!
