Arnold Arre's "After Eden"

Arnold Arre has a new graphic novel called AFTER EDEN, published by Anino Comics, an imprint of Adarna House Inc. The book will be available at this year's Philippine Bookfair (Adarna booth, Megatrade Hall, SM Megamall) from August 30-September 8, and then at all leading book stores and comic book outlets come November.

"After Eden" is a love story that involves six people, serendipitous weather disturbances, and the minions of heaven and hell. It is, by turns, strange, hilarious and heartbreaking -- a story that somehow manages to be complex and yet pure and simple at the same time. It is also the best thing Arnold Arre has done so far, and that's really saying something, considering that he's won National Book Awards for his previous works, "The Mythology Class" and "Trip to Tagaytay." Arnold has truths to tell about love, friendship, loyalty and betrayal, and he tells them with an eloquence -- in words and pictures -- that is all his own. - Luis Joaquin M. Katigbak, (Palanca Award-winning) author of Happy Endings
