#1 A Christmas story

“Once when I was working at a newspaper, I was asked by my editor to write a story about Santa Claus. At first I thought that the story would be silly, but then I realized that Santa might have good stories to tell. I interviewed some of them, and a Santa from a big shopping mall told me this story, which happened in my hometown, Manaus, a few years ago…”

#2 Keep moving

“Our lives are constantly changing. Nothing lasts forever. Things change and losses are inevitable. It’s painful, but there is no recipe for eternal happiness and we can only adapt to everything that comes ahead. This strip is called “Keep Moving” and I dedicate it to all the people who needed or are needing to reinvent themselves to move forward.”

#3 It’s not over yet

“What’s happening in my hometown, Manaus, is mainly the result of the incompetence and lack of planning by government officials at all levels, but some other factors contributed to this tragedy. Ignorance, denying science, fake news and the unfounded notion that the worst is already gone is leading hundreds of thousands to death around the world. Let’s stay alert and careful and mind each other’s own well-being.”
