Free TRESE poster

Post this on your wall for your own protection

We'll be giving away this diabolical TRESE poster during FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, May 3.

Buy a copy of TRESE: MURDER ON BALETE DRIVE and get a free poster. It's that simple!

It'll definitely be available at Comic Odyssey, Robinsons Galleria.
I'll update you guys if we'll make the poster available at other comic book stores.

Please check my Twitter page on Saturday morning for updates:

(If you already bought a copy, don't worry because we're putting together a plan so you can also get the free TRESE poster. More details about that soon!)

One more thing, if you see two suspicious looking individuals lurking around Comic Odyssey, Galleria and Comic Quest, Megamall during FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, that's probably me and Kajo. :)

Hunting TRESE

Last Wednesday, my friend texted that she got a copy of TRESE at National Bookstore, Greenbelt. I went there Thursday and it was already sold out. :-)

I asked the lady at Customer Service if she could check the nearest branch. So, she called up Glorietta and they were already sold out as well.

It might take them a week before they could restock again.

Visprint is in the process of delivering to the other stores, as well as stores outside of Metro Manila.

UPDATE (April 29) : Comic Quest and Comic Odyssey already have copies of TRESE. In case they've run out, just tell them to order a copy for you.

If it will be more convenient for you to go to a branch of National Bookstore, Powerbooks, Fully Booked, and Pandayan Bookstore, then I highly suggest that you call them up / email them and ask them to reserve a copy for you.

Below are the contact info of the said bookstores:

When the sun sets in the city of Manila,
don’t you dare make a wrong turn and
end up in that dimly-lit side of the metro,
where aswang run the most-wanted kidnapping rings,
where kapre are the kingpins of crime,
and engkantos slip through the cracks
and steal your most precious possessions.

When crime takes a turn for the weird,
the police call Alexandra Trese.

This book contains the follow:
