Great news for everyone waiting for Brazilian/Portuguese translations: Zen Pencils will be updating regularly on the new Brazilian webcomic site Outros Quadrinhos! This site has just launched and is taking popular English webcomics and translating them for a Brazilian audience. The guys behind it are comic industry veterans and professional translators so the lettering is top notch and as good as mine. Twelve of my comics are uploaded already and there will be new ones posted on a regular basis (they are even translating my commentary underneath each comic). You can visit my section here.
I would like to thank everyone who volunteered to translate my comics to Portuguese. There were so many of you and I apologise for having to turn you all down. However, I think Outros Quadrinhos works best for the Portuguese comics as it allows my Brazilian fans to interact with each other, share the comics, find new webcomic series and hopefully it will also attract new readers to Zen Pencils.
I’m not sure how it happened, but Zen Pencils has gained a pretty big following in Brazil. If all goes to plan, I hope to visit for the World Cup next year and meet (and party with) some of you And it would be even better if Australia qualifies for the finals (they need to beat Iraq on Tuesday – fingers crossed!).
Graças a todos vocês!
