Segovia and Paz illustrates THOR: THE DEVIANTS SAGA

Here are preview pages from THOR: THE DEVIANTS SAGA by Stephen Segovia and Jason Paz.

Newsarama: The artist on the series is Stephen Segovia — how has working with him on the story been? After working on books like Silver Surfer, he seems to be one of Marvel's go-to guys for large-scale stories like this one.

Rob Rodi: He's slam-dunking it; the pages are just full of this wild, kinetic energy. You have to grip the edge of your desk while you're looking at them, or they might rattle you right out of your chair.

Inquirer interviews Gerry Alanguilan about ELMER

With a second edition in stores, Super! talks to the creator of the beloved ‘Elmer’ 
By: Adrian M. Dy Philippine Daily Inquirer, October 22, 2011

If chickens could talk, what would they say? Put down that two-piece meal with gravy and rice? Stop pitting them against their own kind for gambling purposes? Or maybe something even deeper?

Such is the world of “Elmer,” the multi-awarded graphic novel by Gerry Alanguilan, now on its second edition. And while on first glance, one would think that a comic about a bunch of chickens would lend itself well to humor, “Elmer” is actually a moving tale about family and legacy, which is why it was nominated for an Eisner award, the comic equivalent of the Oscars. We sat down to chat with its creator on the morning of the second edition’s launch last Oct. 15 to talk chickens.

How would you describe “Elmer”? 

It’s about my speculation of what it would be like if chickens had become intelligent and started talking, and what would happen to the world and us as people, if that happened.


Inquirer interviews TRESE creators

Interviewing the creative minds behind the comic smash hit ‘Trese’ 
By Adrian M. Dy
LATE NIGHT RAMBLINGS, Philippine Daily Inquirer October 22, 2011
When things go bump in the night, it’s Alexandra Trese’s job as the go-to consultant on all things paranormal to make sure they don’t bump into you, or do something much worse. Oct. 8 marked the release of the fourth volume of “Trese,” entitled “Last Seen After Midnight,” containing four brand new cases that chronicle the gruesome happenings that occur when the paranormal intersects with the mundane.

To commemorate the occasion, Super! sat down and picked the brains of the series’ writer Budjette Tan, with artist Kajo Baldisimo joining in midway.

For those who haven’t heard of it before, how would you describe “Trese”? 

Budjette: If you have police procedurals, I guess “Trese” would be a magic procedural. It is “CSI” meets “The X-Files,” “CSI” versus aswangs and engkantos, and it’s set in the wonderful, dimly lit Manila.

You’ve won a Philippine National Book Award for volume 3, “Mass Murders.” Is there now pressure to deliver? 

Kajo: Yes medyo, before that, masaya lang eh, we do this for fun lang. Then after that, meron ka nang notion na, dapat mas maganda yung next project. May responsibility na kami.

Budjette: A responsibility to come up with something new. Even when we do stuff din, it’s like, “What stuff haven’t we done? What else would be interesting?” Also what’s interesting for us? If you notice that’s one of the things Kajo does with the artwork, there’s something new. And that’s also mind games for myself. It’s like I paint myself into a corner. As an analogy, the first time CSI does the DNA-thingy with the techno music it’s like, ’Wow! What a great thing!’ Then after you see it a hundred times, it’s like cut, cut, cut, “Now I know who the murderer is!” It’s the same thing with “Trese.” We need to keep things fresh for ourselves and that’s why Kajo has explored a new style in Book 4, and at the same time, we have new ways of dealing with the mysteries of Manila.


Manila Bulletin interviews TRESE creators

Horror in the Philippines!
Manila Bulletin, Fresh Ink
October 22, 2011 

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.

Happy Halloween!
