"Okay, what the...?" is what I initially asked. After much intense scholarly interpretation [kidding], I have concluded that the publisher Abril released a series that was available in Brazil in the '70s, and a Portuguese-exclusive series in the late '90s.
.
The Verbo series listed below was evidently widely available in both Portugal and Brazil.
.

Known American Volumes: 1, 2, 3, 7 -- more, but not sure which.

Note: This series uses the art and layout of the Italian editions.
