mini kuš! #47 'Sutrama' by Daniel Lima, will be released on 24 January 2017.

Sutrama is a narrative about Roberte’s predilection for paradox and semantic opacity, playing incessantly with irony. This scenic dialogue becomes a polished surface for the green analyst, in which the prime meaning to be discerned is the analyst's own reflection.

'Brume' by Amanda Baeza, kuš! mono #2, will be released 21 February 2017

Although Amanda Baeza’s drawings seem to come from another world, the collected comics in Brume are based on real events and real feelings.

Format: A5 (14.8 cm x 21 cm / 6" x 8"), 116 pages, full-color, perfect bound
