TRESE Book 6 preview 3






I've had this "opening scene" in mind for more than a year. So, when I saw this scene (see below) of Rinko Kikuchi in PACIFIC RIM, I went insane! 
 

I posted that picture on my Instagram last July 2013, so yes, as far as last year, I already knew what we were going to name Book 6.

And I posted these other pictures of Rinko Kikuchi, imagining what she'd look like as Trese. Wondering what it would like if Guillermo del Toro directed the movie version.

Guess we'll all have to wait and see if that ever happens.

You can read Preview1 of TRESE BOOK 6 at http://tresekomix.blogspot.com/2014/04/trese-book-6-preview-1.html

In case you were wondering, the main inspiration for Verdugo was the character JULIO VALIENTE


He was not inspired by Raiden from Mortal Kombat (although, the resemblance is undeniable).


Nor was he inspired by these guys from "Big Trouble in Little China" (but I certainly loved that movie).

TRESE Book 6 preview 1







Hi everyone! Let me read your mind and answer your questions!

Yes, TRESE Book 6: HIGH TIDE AT MIDNIGHT is delayed. We really thought we could finish it earlier, but we haven't. In fact, we're still working on it, as I write this.

TRESE Book 6 will not be ready by Summer Komikon.

It will be done when it gets done :-)
We'll give you updates when the book gets done and when it'll be available in book stores.

But wait! There's more!

Starting this today, every Wednesday (which is when new comic books are released), we will be uploading page from TRESE Book 6 here in the blog. And we'll keep uploading more pages until we get the book done. So, consider this blog as the "progress bar" of how we're doing with finish the story.

Thank you very much for waiting and all the encouragement for us to complete this new Trese tale.

TRESE exhibit/book launch at Crucible Gallery (October 26)




This October, we dare you to enter Manila’s underworld. Let Kajo Baldisimo be your guide. Join us for his first one-man art show at the Crucible Gallery where we unveil the TRESE NIGHT GALLERY.

Featuring 13 limited-edition digital prints, featuring the creatures and characters from the award-winning graphic novel TRESE, created by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo. Also on display will be the original artwork from Stories from the Diabolical.

This gateway to the underworld will be open from October 22 until November 3 at the Crucible Gallery, SM Megamall, Level 4.

October 26 will be official launch of the exhibit, which will also be the night we launch TRESE: BOOK OF MURDERS, a special collector’s edition compiling the first 13 cases with digitally-updated artwork.



More details about this event in the nights to come.

Trese Isyu 5 Komiks



Yup, you're not seeing things. These are panels of TRESE written in Tagalog. Last year, we got invited to be part of DepEd's new K-12 Reading List and, of course, we could not say no.

This means, grade school and high school students in the Philippines are now required to read this particular TRESE story, which accidentally got labelled "TRESE ISYU 5", because it was based on Case 5 "A Little Known Murder in Studio 4".

So, every now and again, I'd get email and messages from teachers and students asking me where they can find a copy of TRESE ISYU 5. At first I got confused and eventually figured out what they were looking for.

If you'd like to read Trese in Tagalog, you can actually download the translated version at: http://baitang7.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/learning-package-baitang-7-ikalawang-markahan-part-2.pdf

And let me just say hello to all the new readers that somehow found themselves in this page because you were looking for TRESE ISYU 5. If you'd like to read more Trese stories, they are available in bookstores and comic book shops around the country. 

Here's a list of the Trese books that are now in stores:

TRESE: MURDER ON BALETE DRIVE (book1)
TRESE: UNREPORTED MURDERS (book2)
TRESE: MASS MURDERS (book3)
TRESE: LAST SEEN AFTER MIDNIGHT (book4)
TRESE: MIDNIGHT TRIBUNAL (book5)
