La Salle alumnus, student team up for Alamat comic book

La Salle alumnus and former faculty Carlo Vergara (BSC-MMG 90) recently released One Night in Purgatory, a 56-page comic book presented by Alamat Comics, the same group of Filipino comic book creators that presented Arnold Arre’s award-winning “The Mythology Class.”

Joining Vergara is Angela San Juan (AB-Lit 01), who shares editing chores with David Hontiveros, finalist in the 1998 Manila Critics Circle National Book Awards. San Juan is currently the VP Internal Affairs of The DLSU Literature Circle.

One Night in Purgatory is part of Alamat’s crusade to elevate the Filipino comic book into a venue for thought-provoking entertainment. It is currently available at the DLSU Bookstores (SPS, St. Benilde, and Brother Athanasius Sports Complex). More information about the book can be found at http:
