CONTROVERSY! Brazilian comic strip accuses Netflix of PLAGIUM for ‘1899’; Check out the HQ and compare!

Netflix has launched in its catalog the new series from the creators of ‘dark🇧🇷 ‘1899‘, and is being accused of plagiarism by the Brazilian illustrator and comic artist Mary Cagnin🇧🇷

The horror series created by Dinner Frize and baran bo odar it bears several similarities with the material by the Brazilian author and seems to have been adapted even visually, with comparative images.

Cagnin exposed on his social networks that several elements of the series were plagiarized from his comic ‘Black Silence‘, published in 2016.

In the thread, Cagnin posted images that compare his work to the look of the series, which look identical.

“I’M IN SHOCK. The day I found out that the 1899 series is just IDENTICAL to my comic Black Silence, published in 2016,” she says.

Take the time to watch:

“I’m in shock. I found that the 1899 series is simply identical to my comic Black Silence, published in 2016. It’s all there: The Black Pyramid. The deaths inside the ship/ship. The multinational crew. The apparently strange and unexplained things. The eye symbols and when they appear. Codes written. The voices calling to them. Subtle plot details, such as the personal dramas of the characters, including the mysterious deaths.”

“I had the opportunity that many comic artists never had: to be able to show my work to an international audience. People. I gave lectures. Talked about the plot. I presented it to influential people in the area. The business is serious. Obviously, Black Silence is a short work, almost a short story. It is very easy, in 12 hours of projection of the series, to dilute all these “references”, but the essence of what I created is there.”, HE SAID.

Cagnin even left her comic so that people could see and compare the material created by her with the series:

“Guys, please, anyone who has watched the series and read my comic and can help me with the collection of similarities, it would help me a lot. Later, I will ask for your help so that this matter reaches the media. We cannot think that just because we are Brazilians we should accept this kind of disdain and indifference. We have countless cases of gringos copying us, in movies, series and songs. As in the case of the movie “The Adventures of Pi” which was copied from a Brazilian book.”, he said.

Netflix did not comment on the matter, which should gain greater repercussions in the coming days.

The story of the series revolves around the mysterious circumstances of the journey of an immigrant ship from Europe to New York. The passengers, all with different backgrounds and nationalities, are united by the hopes and dreams of a new century and a future in another country. When they discover a second ship drifting in the open sea that had disappeared months ago, their journey takes an unexpected turn. What they find on board will turn passage to the promised land into a deadly nightmare, connecting each of them in a web of secrets.
