WAIT, BELE-WHAT? M

ore than a really thought-out comics anthology, Beleléu is one of the most palpable indicators of the current blossoming in Brazilian cartooning. The magazine’s main core consists of four creators (Rio natives Tiago Lacerda, Eduardo Arruda and Daniel Lafayette, joined by Brasilia transplant Stêvz) with wildly diverse approaches to the many possibilities hidden in a white page before it actually becomes sequential art; the commom, selling point is a shared interest in some very elevated cartoony plasticity and a peculiar (some dare say mean) sense of humor. The first edition sports collaborations from Argentinian creators Berliac and Kioskerman plus Caio Gomez and Danilo Z.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX?

THIS SIDE UP


{

a: the holy grail

c: spongebob squarepants

a: a mogwai

b: a shrunken head

answer: grumpy mind your damn business!

d: kryptonite

b: kittens

answer: a tv preacher satan leads people to drugs!

c: paraguayan cigarettes

a: kermit, the frog

c: a particle accelerator

d: human organs

b: mcgyver

d: the white stripes

answer: all the alternatives are correct. There was only macgyver inside the box, but he created a particle accelerator using only the things he had in his pocket. The experiment went wrong and the box generated a black hole which swallowed Earth and everything in it, including Kermit, the frog and the White Stripes.

Listen! Billie is singing. Shut up.

We are in the era of premeditation and the perfect crime.


Our criminals are no longer those unarmed young people invoking the excuse of love.

Hey! I’m trying to listen to Billie. Can’t you shut up?

ok. He’s here. it should be done quickly.

Their alibi is irrefutable:

philosophy that can turn murderers into judges.

- and well, or the boss will get angry.

IT’S INCREDIBLE THAT AFTER SO MANY CENTURIES SINCE WE’VE BEGUN TO THINK SCIENTIFICALLY ABOUT THE WORLD, WE STILL HAVEN’T REACHED A UNIVERSALLY ACCEPTED DEFINITION OF WHAT IS LIFE.

I was IN THE DESERT

or maybe it was a flying saucer

e’re back, live from Earth, where, in a few moments we’ll know who is going to be the next Miss Human Being of the century. But, first, our last finalist: Hope, on stage, weighing ninety tons — and still, lighter than a feather —, watch out for her measurements: 15 inches tall, 184 feet bust, 32” waist, mile round hips with a half-mile long smile, she’s a dream girl for sure. A Quantic Physics graduate at Sri Lanka University, her hobbies include melting polar ice caps and eating stuffed crab shells. She would also like to discover the cure for toe cancer and the meaning of life, just as soon as pigs start flying in Malasia. She can definitely fill out a bikini, and name her algorithms and the square roots of our foreign debt at any time. It keeps her humour tanned and shiny like a sunday morning atom bomb. She doesn’t mess around, she’s ready and shaved and determined to win.

The judges check the stars through the telescope, the audience through binoculars and their consciences through electron microscopes. The gamblers are ready and betting high: it’s a close race, even though Hope has murdered all the other contestants. Last month’s champion has had her crown of thorns surgically removed, resigned and can’t wait to trade her dead weight belt and heels for a trip to Acapulco. The crowd goes wild with the sponsor’s ads, Hope tap dances all over her opponents’ dead bodies, whistling cat food jingles and smoking big cigars. The judges flip a coin. Hope sells all of her stockfunds as the crowd claps madly at the apllause sign. And here it is, only two moths late, the sealed envelope with the results and the bill. Ladies and gentlemen, we will announce the winner after the commercial break.


IT’S BETTER TO JUST GIVE THEM WHAT THEY WANT!

A COMIC BASED ON A MOVIE

BASED ON ANOTHER MOVIE THAT’S BASED ON A BOOK


THAT’S BASED ON A MARGERINE COMERCIAL!

IT AIN’T OVER ‘TIL IT’S OVER ELCERDO HAS PATENTED POMEGRANATE LIQUOR. HE LIVES IN A SMALL VILLAGE IN FRANCE, PRODUCING IT AND RAISING GOATS

stêvz was last seen playing bongos naked in a cave on the outskirts of Oaxaca

Daniel Lafayette became the leader of human resistance against the machines

Eduardo Arruda went to live in the woods, away from the artificiality and excesses of civilization. But villagers nearby are said to have seen him practicing petty theft of items such as fruits and bottles of anti-dandruff shampoo.
