FIRST LOOK: Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba release their first graphic novel: Two Brothers

February 13th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Dark Horse is proud to announce Two Brothers, the latest collaboration between Brazilian siblings Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá. Guaranteed to delight and astound,Two Brothers gives readers a deeply moving reading experience in the spirit of the twins’ previous books De:Tales and Daytripper.

Twin brothers Omar and Yaqub may share the same features, but they could not be more different from one another. And the possessive love of their mother, Zana, stirs the troubled waters between them even more. After a brutally violent exchange between the young boys, Yaqub, “the good son,” is sent from his home in Brazil to live with relatives in Lebanon, only to return five years later as a virtual stranger to the parents who bore him, his tensions with Omar unchanged. Family secrets engage the reader in this profoundly resonant story about identity, love, loss, deception, and the dissolution of blood ties.

Set in the port city of Manaus on the riverbanks of the Amazon, Two Brothers celebrates the vibrant life and diversity of Brazil. Based on a work by the acclaimed novelist Milton Hatoum, Two Brothers is stunningly reimagined by the award-winning graphic novelists Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá.

Praise for Fábio Moon & Gabriel Bá’s Daytripper:

“By the time you reach the final chapter of this gorgeous, expressive and poignant comic book/meditation-on-mortality by Brazilian twin brothers Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá, what will linger with you is a quiet, clear-eyed sense of hopefulness.”—NPR

“Moon and Bá’s visual approach is more suggestive than representative but manages just the right amount of detail.”—World Literature Today

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
