Manila Bulletin interviews TRESE creators
Horror in the Philippines!

There's no better way to spend Halloween than to sit alone in the dark, flashlight in hand, and read the newest volume of the critically acclaimed comic book series, ‘’Trese,’’ written by Budjette Tan and illustrated by Kajo Baldisimo, winners of the Philippine National Book Award for Best Graphic Literature.
Already in its fourth installment entitled ‘’Last Seen After Midnight,’’ Trese continues to fuse local horror mythology with graphic storytelling and dark art in telling the story of Alexandra Trese, a detective who specializes in supernatural cases. Here, Alexandra is faced with four all-new cases involving foul play, magic spells, and supernatural criminals.
We were lucky enough to be able to interview Budjette and Kajo before the launch at National Bookstore Bestsellers in Robinsons Galleria. Make sure to buy this spooky comic, and share it with all your friends to give them a good scare that will last them until next year… when even MORE Trese volumes are released.
