"Adventures of Matame" is a comic based on the unique and alternative experiences of the Torres Vedras Carnival, and which started first on social networks to now take shape in a print magazine
Os Cromos das Aventuras do MATAME
Announcement to the revelers and revelers of all the carnivals of this world, and beyond!
We created this crowdfunding campaign with the goal of bringing together the first 15 stories of "Adventures of the Mat" in a high quality and exclusive print edition of this comic.
The Adventures of Matame are based on the real experiences of a growing group of "chromes" and "chromates" that create their own carnival, better known as Carnorgia, in the secret interior of Portugal's most Portuguese carnival.
At first it was on the social network that Matame's adventures came to light, but our superhero and supreme defender of Carnorgia dreams of moving from being just a virtual hero to invading our planet and materializing in our hands.
Os autores: David Cara-Nova, Filipe Branco e Fred Zombie
So here is our appeal from the ends of Carnorgia: Let's all do the impossible and help Matame in this difficult mission!
* Institutional and commercial support (advertising) is also a precious and unique form of collaboration! Please contact us to connect ... We will certainly all be very well rewarded as part of this great Matame Adventure!
In the meantime, they are also invited to visit us at the exhibition at the Torres Vedras Municipal Library (it opens on September 28th, until October 31st). This exhibition is a unique opportunity to get a close look at the adventures of our hero and his companions in pursuit of the villains that threaten the happiness of Matrafoland revelers!
Welcome aboard the great Carnorgia! And Thank you so much for your support !!!
