Pedro & Lourenço. Pedro & Lourenço were created by Arthur O. Friel (Job Briggs, Dugan (II), Lucio León, Roderick McKay, Sixto Scott, Wallace Sparhawk) and appeared in twenty-five stories in Adventure (U.S.) from 1919 to 1935, beginning with “The Snake” (Adventure (U.S.), Sept. 18, 1919).

Pedro is a tall, handsome, droll Brazilian. Lourenço, a native Brazilian, is older, wiser, less droll and more careful. They usually work on a rubber tree plantation in the Amazon. They have a variety of strange and dangerous adventures, from dealing with clueless white men venturing into areas they shouldn’t go to legendary man-killing giant serpents.
