O Quinze Em Quadrinhos: A Graphic Novel Adaptation of Rachel de Queiroz's Classic Novel

O Quinze Em Quadrinhos is a graphic novel adaptation of O Quinze, the debut novel of Brazilian writer Rachel de Queiroz, published in 1930. The novel depicts the harsh reality of the 1915 drought in the Northeast of Brazil, through the stories of three characters: ConceiÃÃo, a young teacher who tries to convince her grandmother to leave their farm and move to Fortaleza; Chico Bento, a poor cowboy who loses his job and has to walk with his family across the barren land; and Vicente, ConceiÃÃo's cousin and love interest, who struggles to save his cattle from starvation.

The graphic novel adaptation was created by Shiko, a comic artist from ParaÃba, who also experienced the droughts of the Northeast. Shiko used a realistic style to portray the suffering and resilience of the sertanejos (people from the hinterland), as well as the contrast between the rural and urban settings. He also respected the original text of Rachel de Queiroz, who was one of the first female writers to address social issues and challenge gender stereotypes in Brazilian literature.

O Quinze Em Quadrinhos was published by Ãtica in 2012, as part of a series of graphic novel adaptations of Brazilian classics. The book received positive reviews from critics and readers, who praised Shiko's art and fidelity to the source material. The book also won the TrofÃu HQ Mix award for best adaptation in 2013.

O Quinze Em Quadrinhos is a powerful and touching graphic novel that brings to life one of the most important novels in Brazilian literature. It is a tribute to Rachel de Queiroz and her legacy, as well as a testimony of the history and culture of the Northeast.

O Quinze Em Quadrinhos is not only a faithful adaptation of the novel, but also a creative reinterpretation of it. Shiko added some scenes and dialogues that were not present in the original text, but that enriched the narrative and the characterization of the protagonists. For example, he showed more of ConceiÃÃo's inner conflict between her modern views and her traditional family, as well as her attraction to Vicente. He also depicted more of Chico Bento's journey and his encounters with other migrants, such as a blind man who plays the accordion and a woman who sells her body for food.

Another aspect that stands out in O Quinze Em Quadrinhos is the use of color. Shiko used a limited palette of brown, yellow and orange tones to convey the dryness and heat of the sertÃo, creating a contrast with the blue and green tones of Fortaleza and the sea. He also used different shades of gray to indicate flashbacks and memories, creating a sense of nostalgia and loss. The color scheme also helped to highlight some symbolic elements, such as the blood of the animals, the fire of the train, and the flowers of the mandacaru (a cactus that blooms when it rains).

O Quinze Em Quadrinhos is a graphic novel that deserves to be read by anyone who appreciates literature, history and art. It is a work that honors Rachel de Queiroz's vision and talent, while also showcasing Shiko's skills and originality. It is a work that shows the beauty and the tragedy of the Northeastern culture, as well as the strength and the hope of its people. e0e6b7cb5c
