    Catra Brazilian Estrela Minicomic - English translation - Catra in: 'THE CAT PLATOON'

    Presenting... the English-language translation of the Brazilian Estrela Princess of Power minicomic 'THE CAT PLATOON' starring CATRA! This was an official minicomic, produced by Estrela for the Brazilian market and packed with the Catra figure in 80's.

    * Massive thanks to the wonderful Marcelo Barbosa for acquiring so many scans for me! I am very grateful for your assistance!

    * Portuguese-to-English translations by Penny Dreadful (hey, that's me).

    * Profuse thanks to the human dynamo Dušan Mitrović for transposing the dialogue into the word balloons AND cleaning up these pages in record time. I am stunned by how flawless this looks, but I shouldn't be surprised given Dušan's incredible skill.

    * At this time, I don't know the names of the writer or artist for the minicomic. If anybody has info on that, please let me know.

    There are so many original, official MOTU/POP/NA stories from Brazil, Italy, and Germany (in addition to US and UK stories) but English-speaking fans have very limited access to these except for the many entries which can be found in the Dark Horse 'MOTU Character Guide & World Compendium' and in the upcoming Supplement guide. I love the idea of giving more fans access to official vintage stories that might have otherwise been inaccessible to them.

    In addition, if there's enough interest in such a thing, I'd love to see book collections of all these comics, but translated into English. Is this something that you'd like to see?

    NOTE: Massive apologies to those waiting to read the Estrela Zodac minicomic translation. There was a delay with that, but it is coming SOON, so keep watching the cosmos.

    Definitely!

    Thanks to everyone involved. I'm planning on reading this awesome looking mini-comic later this morning, as well as sharing your Facebook post to the .org She-Ra and the Princesses of Power fan page.

    I'd love to see these actually printed as mini-comics for Power-Con as something.

    I always appreciate seeing Catra's toy outfit in action! I'd be down for a volume devoted to these, as they are (no pun intended) totally foreign to me. This is the first I've seen of them.
