"Crime da Mala" or “Suitcase Crime“, was a famous crime that chocked the population of São Paulo late in the 20s, when a man killed his wife, stung her body, placed in a suitcase and sent it to Paris.

 

Crime da Mala Editions is a self publishing comic-micro-label grounded in Basel, Switzerland, created specially to sell the artwork and horror comics of Koostella.

 

Crime da Mala is an analog label, it means, we don´t sell anything online, if you want to get some products our catalog you have to find the suitcase at some independent comic market or festival.
