    Zodac minicomic (Estrela) translation - Sneak Peek

    There's no vintage MOTU Zodac minicomic, you say? Well, not in the US, but he DID have an original, official minicomic in Brazil!

    In the 80's Estrela produced several unique pack-in minicomic stories & re-interpreted several existing US minicomics too. Luckily, these were written in Portuguese, so I can read them (my parents are from the Azores islands). Thus, I've taken the liberty of translating the Zodac minicomic into English.

    My very talented friend and fellow MOTU Dark Horse writer Jukka Issakainen has been working on replacing the text in the word balloons as well as going the extra mile to restore the pages! Major hanks to him, and mega-thanks to my friend Marcelo Barbosa (macbee) for his help in securing images of this minicomic (and others) for the 2017 'MOTU Character Guide & World Compendium'. Thanks to Marcelo and Jukka, I can share this little sneak peek of the English-language version with you.

    But where will we be seeing the complete comic? Do I smell another book from Dark Horse in the works?

    Wow great work! Looking forward to seeing the completed comic
    Any chance of seeing these printed? Maybe as a PC exclusive like Busta did with the Return From Terror Island mini-comic? That would be so sweet!

    Thanks, Penny Dreadful! This is so cool. I have always loved Zodac and really look forward to learning more about him in the minicomic. Who knew he was Brazilian?

    At last year's Power-Con, I got this awesome figure that combined my two favorite characters:

    Guess I'm a sucker for goggles!
