About me

Augusto Paim © Tata Ziegler

Hi, I’m Augusto. Nice to meet you.

This site is basically my portfolio, but it was also thought as a space for you to access contents on journalism, comics and culture in general. Let me explain how it works.

There are five main sections:

Some works are listed in more than one category.

By clicking on PORTFOLIO, you have access to all the works, regardless of category.

Oh yes, of course there is also a section only for COMICS JOURNALISM, my speciality.

And there is even a BLOG, where I post news, reviews, or curiosities and some random thoughts…

That said, maybe you still need a short bio. See below!

Have fun on this site!


Augusto Paim is a journalist graduated from UFSM and Master in Literature/Creative Writing from PUCRS, both universities in Brazil. He is the author of the book “Die Comicreportage” (‘The Comics Reportage’, Ch. A. Bachmann, 2022), a result of his doctorate at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany. In partnership with the Goethe Institute, he was the curator of the Osmose project for the exchange of comic artists, and he organized the I and II International Meeting of Comics Journalism.
