Imagining TRESE action figures

Yes, we can all dream that someday our comic book creations will have action figures and all sorts of merchandising. For now, we go back to writing and drawing more stories about them.

a High Profile feature

The latest issue of HIGH PROFILE magazine just came off the press and if you can somehow stop staring the fantastic Georgina Wilson photo-spreads and the "Land of Legend" fantasy pictorial, you'll get read three geeks (i.e me, Mark Torres, and Paolo Fabregas) talk about comics and making comics.

Many thanks to the High Profile-crew, headed by Marco Venditti, Carmena Moura, and Chad Rialp.

Joey Agbayani's LOLA (animated movie)

Lola is an 'aswang'. In Philippine Folklore, an 'aswang' is a combination of vampire, witch, and shape-shifter. Lola is hired as an actress by a very ambitious director who exploits her supernatural abilities to save on special effects and production cost. The director is very hard to please so several takes are made until the witching hour has come to pass. After 12 midnight, Lola transforms into her most monstrous state and all hell breaks loose. The ambitious and relentless director, however, still insist on getting this award winning shot despite being haunted by 'Lola'.
