Juca e Zeca, by Rocha Vieira

Rocha Vieira was the first Portuguese comic artist to create a daily comic strip. His series 'Fitas de Juca e Zeca' appeared for the first time in August, 1920 in Sécula. He drew this comic for a period of two and a half years. In the series Vieira showed a great interest in sociology. In 1922, Rocha Vieira started another daily comic, 'As proezas de Necas e Tonecas'. For this series, he used a more American approach: the series distictly resembled 'The Katzenjammer Kids' by Harold Knerr. Rocha Vieira also published in the magazines ABC-Zinho and Pim Pam Pum!.
