Carlos Ruas is a Brazilian designer who created the blog “Um Sábado Qualquer” (Once Upon a Sabbath) in 2009. Today, his web comic blog is one of the most widely read in Brazil, with more than 40k daily visitors and over 2.7 million readers on Facebook. On Tapastic, Carlos' comics are divided into three series: Once Upon a Saturday, Topsy-Turvy World, and Cats and Dogs.
In "God Behind the Scenes" Carlos uses irreverence with a big dose of humor to approach one of the most controversial topics in the world: religion. Who’s right? Christians, Atheists, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Muslims, Hare Krishnas, Greeks, Egyptians, Mormons, and all the other 10 thousand religions that exist and have existed on this planet. Carlos refuses to take sides to defend or offend any of them. His intention is to encourage dialogue, debate, and free philosophical thought. Setting aside dogmas and sins, Carlos manages to transform the entire existential question into something comedic. After all, where do we come from, and where are we going? Could the answer lie with the gods? It follows then, that the best approach would be to put them all together in a bar to discuss the topic.
Have fun reading “God behind the scenes” a comic strip that shows God walking hand-in-hand with humor, "Topsy turvy world" which challenges readers to question their perspectives, and "Cats and Dogs" which will make you laugh at the dynamic antics between the titular characters.
