I had a blast yesterday at the newly-launched Studio Salimbal’s “Let’s Talk Philippine Comics” forum at Fully Booked BGC. The place was packed with comics creators and fans, and the discussions were lively and informative. (More info in a bit.)
In a city where the aswang control everything that is illegal and where ancient gods seek to control everything else, enforcing the law can be a very difficult task.
When crime takes a turn for the weird, the police normally call Alexandra Trese. Lately, it seems like others have been taking that call.
A mysterious racer has been breaking the speed limit, running after and capturing criminals.
A masked giant has been demolishing drug dens and breaking up gangs.
Trese must confront these supernatural crime-fighters and bring order back to the city, before the underworld attempts to seek balance in its own way.
There will be book launches of Trese 5 on November 10 and 24. Creators Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo will be answering questions and signing copies. There will also be a Trese art gallery on display.
