Manix's "12" reviewed in Inquirer

Manix Abrera’s silent comic book
By Adjani Guerrero Arumpac
Philippine Daily Inquirer



TO FIND HER MOTHER, the lost girl places her eyes on a red balloon. She lets it fly. The balloon soars to the skies, and then the wide universe. On earth, the girl without eyes opens her mouth in awe at things she never should have seen.

Rude awakenings seem to be Manix Abrera’s preoccupation in his newest comic book, “12.” This collection of 12 stories is reminiscent of Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s 1930s strips in their grounded absurdity and nagging, intense feeling of loneliness.
