Alan Moore, soon to be emblazoned on chests all over Brazil

My grasp of Portuguese is almost non-existent (shamefully, it stretches to obrigado! and feliz natal! and that’s about it), but here’s a Brazilian company selling a T-shirt and print with a cartoon of the bard of Northampton on it. Given the appearance of V For Vendetta masks on the streets of Rio during the recent mass unrest there, perhaps this is another sign that Alan Moore is becoming something of a local folk hero there. Certainly, this design has a strong anti-consumerist message. The drawing is by occasional Mad Magazine contributor Raphael Salimena.  I like it, he’s managed to get a certain Kev O’Neill quality into the inking, which is highly appropriate.
