Sunday Inquirer reviews UNDERPASS

“Underpass” by various creators (Summit Media)
A CHILLING journey to the dark, hidden places we fear, “Underpass” is a comic book anthology featuring four well-crafted horror stories.

In “SIM,” Gerry Alanguilan shows just how much can go wrong when one picks up a discarded SIM card in a jeepney. Betrayal comes in many colors in “Judas Kiss,” a tale from David Hontiveros, Budjette Tan and Oliver Pulumbarit. There is a magnetic quality to the violence found in Hontiveros’ and Ian Sta. Maria’s “Katumbas.” Vanity and fame come at a pretty price in “The Clinic,” from Tan and Kajo Baldisimo. “Underpass” is a sidetrip worth your attention as it is both disturbing and amazing.

And now for some not-so-good news...
Me and Kajo were really hoping to launch a new story this Komikon, but work got the better of us and we were not able to finish it on time. So sorry about that.

I won't be able to attend the Komikon this Saturday.

Hope to see you all in the next comic book event.

night swimming

"They were once worn by two aswang who were forced to do battle in 'The Theater of Doom'. Every night they fought for their lives. Their master used the masks to control them. When we put a stop to the theater and set them free, the aswang decided to stay with us. They died defending your grandfather from the maligno horde."-- Anton Trese

And this is Kajo's illustration of those two very loyal aswang and a very young Lolo Trese. I'm hoping we can one day tell the tale of the Trese Clan's early adventures and cases.
