    Hi guys!

    I've just launched my first ebook on Amazon Kindle and I would like to invite you to get to know my work. It is entitled The Art of Belmonte and contains 128 satirical cartoons covering mainly the period between the World War II and the beginning of Cold War. Created by Brazilian cartoonist Belmonte (1896 - 1947), they illustrate the political and military conflict in an intelligent and provocative way.

    Benedito Carneiro Bastos Barreto was born on 15 May 1896, in São Paulo. He became known under the pseudonym Belmonte. He was researcher, drawing, painter, cartoonist and journalist. He started his career drawing for Alvorada magazine and, later, for Miscellanea magazine.

    Belmonte’s caricature was up to date with world problems, bringing information in a efficient way. It even provoked critics from Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebels in a pronouncement broadcasted by Berlin Radiostation. Thanks to his knowledge of political, social and economical problems he published his work in many international newspapers. He declined an invitation to become Metro Goldwyn Mayer’s illustrator in New York. Instead he remained in the position of Advertisement Department Chief of ECR (Empresas Cinematográficas Reunidas) in São Paulo.

    Belmonte died in consequence of tuberculosis on 19 April 1947.

    I hope you like it. Please, feel free to make comments and share my work. Enjoy!

    Best wishes to everyone!

    Those of you with subscriptions or who have already been to the newsagent will know that Commando's first-ever female lead character - Lieutenant Yana Belinky - has made her appearance in Operation Nachthexen.

    That new edition is something to look out for.


    I notice on the other thread that the comics only sell 9600 copies per month - makes me wonder how a couple of copies make it into my neighbourhood newsagent here in sunny Queensland.



    Also, when did they become "The Home of Heroes"? - all of the early ones were "War Stories in Pictures" followed (somewhere around the 2000 mark) by "For Action and Adventure""
