Of course you’ve heard the phrase, “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.” So what happens when your own family throws you on that scorched road and leaves you to endure its horrors?
That’s the crazy premise behind The Terrible Elisabeth Dumn Against the Devils in Suits, an oversized one-shot from Brazilian writer/artist Arabson out this November from Image Comics. Arabson makes the leap from Brazilian super-stardom to world-wide acclaim with help from a translation from none other than writer James Robinson.
“Elisabeth is the culmination of my career,” Arabson said in the official Image press release. “After years working at Brazilian Newspaper I knew what I had to do. What story I wanted to tell. Just had to do it. Elisabeth was a warm company at those months I draw this. Hope it is warm for you, too.”

From Image Comics: This November, Image Comics will release THE TERRIBLE ELISABETH DUMN AGAINST THE DEVILS IN SUITS: a gloriously oversized one-shot from new Brazilian sensation Arabson, with colors by Anderson Cabral and translation by Eisner Award winner James Robinson.
“Elisabeth is the culmination of my career,” said Arabson. “After years working at Brazilian Newspaper I knew what I had to do. What story I wanted to tell. Just had to do it. Elisabeth was a warm company at those months I draw this. Hope it is warm for you, too.”
Klebs Junior, the editor on the story added: “Brazil is exploding with great comics and artists. Our studio for example, is doing dozens of books for the US and European publishers. But this is so exciting to show at last the talent of the Brazilian storytellers beggining with Arabson. Stay tuned for even more coming.”
Elisabeth Dumn is a strong, rebellious girl who’s determined to make her own way. And it’s a good thing, too, because her father promised her to the Devil long ago, and he’s coming to claim what’s his.
“I fell in love with the story and art for Elisabeth from the moment I saw it, and I am deeply honored to assist with its translation,” said Robinson. “This superb work absolutely deserves to be seen by comic readers in the U.S. The story is unique and magical and the art is no less wonderful. Arabson is a truly incredible talent who I’m excited to see find a larger audience.”
