António Moreira Antunes, or simply António, is a talented Portuguese caricaturist and cartoonist whose career blossomed in the period after the Revolution of April 25, 1974. António started his career in March 1974 in the magazine República. In his comic 'Kafarnaum', which appeared in Expresso starting in 1975, he stigmatized the pros and cons of the PREC (period after the revolution). Later, he started working for other magazines, including Diário de Notícias, A Capital, A Vida Mundial and O Jornal. In 1983, his album 'Suspensórios' was published. That same year, António received a prize at the Salão International de Cartoon for his pastiche on the Israeli invasion of Lebanon.
