On September 2, 2014 i was the special guest at the 363rd edition of Tertúlia BD de Lisboa.
The Tertúlia was founded in June 4, 1985 by Geraldes Lino and it’s an informal association for not having official registration or administrators , or associated (and , obviously, not contributions).
Their existence is to promote monthly meetings – always at the 3rd Monday of each month , even if eventually it’s holiday – where only comic book fans participate , whose number varies usually between eight to forty individuals , among whom are authors ( designers, writers / screenwriters, colorists , inkers and letterers ) , editors ( professional and amateur ) , fanzines makers , collectors , booksellers , and , “last but not least ,” simple readers.

To end this post, no comic book fans meeting would be complete without making some comics! As the guest, i started the page, with the first panel, and then pass it to other artist, until the page is complete. And this is the result.
