Congratulations to Mariana Castelo Branco on being nominated Storyhunter of the Month (SOM) for September 2012! Mariana brought us a story about Brazil's street superhero. Cartoonist Lacarmélio de Araújo wears a bright yellow suit and hits the streets of Belo Horizonte every morning to sell his own comic books.
He’s become a well-known street personality in this Brazilian town, acting out the part of Celton, his superhero creation. It's a beautifully shot story that became a hit in Brazil.

Co-founder Alex Ragir interviewed Mariana in Portuguese over Skype. Here's a video of their conversation.
