While famous in Brazil, José Mojica Marins remained little known in America and thus his films were difficult to see until 1994 when Something Weird Video released a dozen of Marins' films on video. Now Fantoma has released three of Marins' films on DVD in new digital widescreen transfers (aspect ratio 1.66:1) from the original 35mm negatives. Marins himself supervised these transfers, and he appears in video introductions (about 10 minutes each) for each film. During these intros, he offers some valuable insights into each film. But arguably the most valuable extras are the reproductions of original Coffin Joe comic books (38 pages each) that come tucked inside the DVD cases.
