TRESE 3000




3000 copies.

It’s not exactly enough to be considered a national best-seller, but it’s a big deal to me (and Kajo) since it’s the first time we’ve ever done anything that sold more than 500 copies.

It was such a big surprise when Nida, our publisher, told me that TRESE Book 1 had already sold 3,000 and is now on its second printing. (And Book 2 has already sold 1,000 copies.)

Thanks to all the comic book store owners, book store managers, and most especially to all readers.

Me and Kajo are still working on Book 3. It’s a bit delayed, we know, but we just want to make sure you have as much fun (and feel as much fear) when you read Case #9 to 13. We hope it’ll be worth the wait.


For the ones who are still trying to hunt down for their own copy of TRESE, it is now available in the following stores:

Best Sellers
Comic Odyssey
Comic Quest
Fully Booked
National Bookstore
Pandayan Bookstore
Powerbooks

If your local branch or favorite bookstore/comic book shop doesn't have copies, just go to their customer service counter and give them the following information:

1
TRESE: MURDER ON BALETE DRIVE
Published by Visprint
Authors: Budjette Tan & KaJo Baldisimo
ISBN: 971-92574-7-4

2
TRESE: UNREPORTED MURDERS
Published by Visprint
Authors: Budjette Tan & KaJo Baldisimo
ISBN: 971-92574-9-0

Tell the bookstore that they can reach Visprint via:

Hope this makes it easier for you to find copies of TRESE.

Many thanks!

Fans of the Kambal





Melvin posted : "[This is] my nephew, Prince. He insisted on having his photo taken wearing one of the Kambal's masks. His fave is Case 7: Embrace of the Unwanted and he's still forcing me to shoot another short horror film cause he wasn't able to play the aswang part on the first one we made last year."

TRESE: The Usual Spot



Bernie the bartender is always the first one to see her. Actually, she’d be the one who’d call his attention. While wiping the bar or serving another customer, he’d suddenly feel this fingernail tap him on the shoulder. He’d smell her perfume first before he’d look and know it was her.

She’d just be there, seated on one of the bar stools in her jacket. Her jacket that had the color of dried rose petals. Or was it more like the color of dried blood?
