‘Feijoada’ is a traditional Brazilian stew of black beans and pork, usually served with rice, shredded kale, orange slices, and other side dishes. Inspired by this dish name, Julia Nascimento and Felipe Kolb Bernardes took the beginnings of their names to create FE&JUada Comics, a two-year slice of life collaboration project depicting their life and adventures as foreigners in Japan. Satirical and light-hearted, the comic also portrays the hardships of making a comic itself.
Story and roughs by Julia Nascimento, character design and inking by Felipe Kolb Bernardes. In English and Japanese.
The story Deadlord, from issue #2, was selected for the comics anthology competition Wake Up, announced during FRAME, the 1st Prague Comic Art Festival, and publish by Centrala in 2017.
