Budj, Trese really is turning into your forte! Great stuff. You MUST gather all these stories into a printed compilation someday. And continue the series even after your original 13 issue run. ^_^

Hey guys!

Thanks very much for the kind words. Glad you're still enjoying the ride. Definitely, me and Kajo are excited everytime Alexandra and the Kambal take us down the dark streets of their Manila.

Wow. After reading Arnold's Andong Agimat, I get treated to this beautiful tale of magical Filipino superfantasy. You guys continue to inspire me.

A few questions... did Guerrero just touch evidence with his bare hands in Page 02? Page 15, "several boyfriends laterS" - intentional? Anyway, love the not-so-veiled references! And "HEATHER came here to meet NOVA". You're having FUN, aren't you?

More of this, please. More stories. More wonder. More magic.

hi mr. zach, carver and mad

guerrero 's wearing a glove. i just didn't draw it properly.palpak ko, and sorry 'bout the typos, i corrected them for the dead tree edition.

thank you.


Rey said...

lapped every page and loved it!
... not new anyway.

Budjette said...

Talaga... naka-gloves si Guerrero?

I thought since this is the Philippines, Guerrero wasn't the type that would don latex gloves and use tweezers. Hahaha!
But yes, as Kajo said, he's really wearing very, very thin gloves.

Hi Zach and Rey, glad you guys liked it. :)

Its been a while since I visited Trese. I'm happy to find you've already spawned 5 issues and the 6th is on the way.

Great work!

Available na ba ulit ang mga ito sa Comic Quest?

Thanks for giving me something to look forward to. I loved seeing the evolution of Kajo's drawing style. I love the brush work in the 5th issue.

Hello MRR and MACAPOBRE! Glad you were able to find your way down our dark alley. And we're glad you liked what you saw.

Just wondering, how'd you end up clicking to this TRESE link. Did I spam you guys? hehehe

Please be back by the end of the month. TRESE 6 should be ready by then. :-)

Hi Luis,

Thanks for the wonderful words about TRESE. Glad you like the book.

So sorry to tell you that we're not yet distributing outside of the Philippines.

We will make the comic books available by mid-November in certain comic book stores in Manila. Will announce it here as soon as things are finalized.

Maybe you can ask the stores owners there to check out TRESE and ask if it's something they're willing to order.

Thanks again!

Mr. Budjette Tan and Mr. Kajo Baldisimo:

Thank you for signing the Trese Book three preview given to me by the Visprint staff yesterday.

Had I known that you will attend the Book Fair in SMX I would have brought with me my two Trese books.

I will soon e-mail you for a possible feature story that I will propose to our paper's editors.

More power! We want more OF Trese!

A. Romero
