Hi Syndikatz!

TRESE BOOK2 should already be in the National Bookstore in your area. If it's not yet there, then ask the customer service lady in the bookstore to reserve a copy for you! :)

So far, the only signing we'll be doing will be at the Komikon in UP in November. Sorry. Hope you can drop by and check out all the other works of komikeros!

Thank you very much :)

I just got a copy of Unreported Murders and now I am definitely one of your fans. Trese and the Kambal rock - and they rock hard!

Budjette said...

Hi Midge!

Where'd you find your copy of Book 2?

Great that you finally one!

Thank you so much!

Check out for some new pin-ups of the Kambal and Trese :)

Hi, Budjette. I got mine at Powerbooks - TriNoMa. I was looking for Murder at Balete Drive, but it was already out of stock.

who is the smiley among the kambal, is it the short hair or the longhair?

I love Trese. Its the best comics I've read so far. I wish we can already make a movie about it.
p.s. if I have the same haircut with trese, I'll definitely look like her.
