“Os Portugas no Dakar” Volume 1 tells in comic strips the stories of the Portuguese motorcycle riders who took part in the Paris-Dakar Rally. It was a partnership with Luis Pinto-Coelho. The idea arose in 2001, at one of the last streaks of the Paris-Dakar rally. The work took some time, and the first volume was published in 2003. In it the true stories of the first Portuguese who entered the Paris-Dakar Rally riding motorcycles between 1991 and 1994 are told in a somewhat funny way. This comic strip book is officially recommended for reading by youngsters.
