INVERNA is a publication created by the Brazilian graphic novelist Paula Mastroberti that aims to promote artwork made by Brazilian female artists. The first issue of the magazine will be made possible by crowdfunding with Catarse in November 9, and it is expected to be launched in 2016 June, in both Portuguese and English, under the imprint PrincessF1.
More than a magazine, INVERNA is becoming a cultural movement that, through its social media channels, discusses the place of women in the comic industry and in comic narrative.
