Disclaimer: This is not meant to be a review. It’s just me, rambling.
Our original plans for Saturday was a trip to the Diabolical for the Trese exhibit and book launch. Joiz and I were hoping that the exhibit would look like an actual bar like in the comic, but alas, it was an art gallery. It still was impressive, as it showcased thirteen prints of Kajo Baldisimo’s work for Trese, as well as some of his original sketches framed. This was also Kajo’s first one-man exhibit.
The event also marked the launch of Trese: Book of Murders, a special collector’s edition of the first thirteen cases with digitally-updated artwook. The book is hardbound, and is a must-buy for Trese fans.
Joiz and Arc bought a copy and had it signed by Kajo and Budgette. I didn’t recognize Kajo because of his (lack of) hair, compared to his ‘do during Aklatan.
Congratulations on the book, Budgette and Kajo. Congrats Kajo for the exhibit!
Bonifacio High Street was packed last Saturday, October 26. I was expecting a crowd at Fully Booked because of the Halloween Comic Fest, but it turns out there was a trick or treat event for the kids. It seemed fitting, because I was there for one thing only.
