'A Turma do Pererê'.

Ziraldo Alves Pinto, who signs with his first name, is a versatile Brazilian comic artist. Starting his career in the 1950s in several magazines, he was active as a comic artist, painter, caricaturist and writer. He had his first success in the 1960s with 'A Turma do Pererê', the first Brazilian comic magazine made by only one artist. During the military dictatorship (1964-1984), he came with the non-conformistic comic character 'O Pasquim', who stole the hearts of many school children and appeared in his own magazine. Among Ziraldo's work for adults 'The Supermãe e Mineirinho' was the most popular.
