It is in our nature to be fascinated by identical twins. We watch them whenever possible, captivated by mirror images interacting, moving independently of one another and yet sharing the same mannerisms and speech patterns. Fbio Moon and Gabriel B are Brazilian twins who share an award-winning talent for comics and an abiding love of the medium. Following in the wake of brothers Gilbert & Jaime Hernandez and Tomer & Asaf Hanuka, Moon & B bring their considerable skills to Dark Horse in De:Tales, their first major American release! This collection of short stories features the pair working together, in tandem, or separately - trading off on the roles of writing and illustrating, sharing those roles or flying solo. Brimming with all the details of human life, their charming tales move from the urban reality of their home in So Paulo to the magical realism of their Latin American background, living up to the twins' critical acclaim and proving that they are a talented pair to watch for.
