TRESE BOOK 7 progress bar

TRESE BOOK 7 progress bar : Good news! We’ve started work on Book 7! Not-so-great-news … ummmm… we just started to work on Book 7. Starting today, you’ll see exactly how much work we’ve done for the new Trese story because we’re going to upload it at and you’ll see a ONE NEW PANEL A DAY. Yup, that’s right! We’re uploading it one panel at a time.

I know. I know. That’s like watching a movie but only being allowed to watch one second of it for each day. So, if this slow “progress bar” is killing you, come back in … ohhhh, maybe 100 days, you’ll get to read the whole new case in one sitting. Or you can come back every couple of days and just see how far we’ve gone.

Why are we doing this? We’re not doing this torture you. We’re this to make sure that we (me and Kajo) get to do a bit of TRESE every day. Actually, Kajo already has two new scripts of TRESE, but I wrote it “Marvel style”, which means it’s a very rough outline of what happens in each page and not much dialogue. Kajo then sends me a new page every time he finishes the “pencils” of it, which I then take and write the copy for it. I send it back to Kajo, who then “inks” the page and puts in the captions and word balloons and then we upload it here every day… panel by panel.

So, sit back, relax (well, try), and enjoy! Should I ask Hank to pour you a drink? It’s going to be a bit of wait here at the TRESE BOOK 7 progress bar.

Many thanks for hanging around!

Instructions found written on an old tourist map

Instructions found written on an old tourist map: Towards the end of Ghost Month, there are places in the city where you can meet with your dearly departed. Bring a jacket. It will become very cold when they appear. Bring their picture. Bring their favorite food and drink. Find an unfinished building or house. Better if you find an unfinished bridge or road. At exactly 4am, hold their picture, think about the last time you talked with them, close your eyes, then take a step forward. When you feel that sudden chill and when someone says, "Hello." open your eyes. You will be able to spend time with that one soul until the sunrises. Offer them the food and drink but don't take any of it. When the sun begins to rise, tell them to head home. Then head home as well.

MOVIEPILOT article about aswang and Philippine Horror Movies

"The Philippines is one of the countries that comprises various cultures and beliefs due to the numerous inhabitants or ethnic groups which resided to its different areas many years ago. The waves of ancient settlers across the islands have had a great contribution to the Filipino culture in present day. This includes customary beliefs, traditions, art, literature, religious practices and beliefs, and so on. All of these cultural traits have been passed through the generations, including tales and myths. With this in mind, here are movies that tell the tale of the Philippine's mythological creatures and the documentaries of these beings."
