TRESE reviewed in POC's Booklat

Aswangs turn noir in Trese, Written by Mighty Rasing

Through the efforts of Budjette Tan and other graphic artists and storytellers, a new generation of Filipinos is enjoying the recreation and fresh interpretation of Pinoy folklore and culture. It is considered Filipino speculative fiction at its best.

Even the best stories in Pinoy komiks can be buried like the proverbial needle in the haystack of pop culture with the dominance of imported comics such as Marvel and DC. That is, if local audiences will not patronize and buy locally written and produced comics. In Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo’s Trese, however, another world-class product by Filipinos is waiting to burst into the mainstream comics scene.
