I guess it’s time to announce that I am working on a new graphic novel and it’s called “Halina Filipina,” to be released later this year under Nautilus Comics.
Technically it’s not really “new” since I began writing and drawing it way back in 2002. The story revolves around Halina, a Filipino-American girl who comes to the Philippines for a visit. Here, she meets a guy named Cris and with some help from him rediscovers her roots… That’s all I can say for now. :)
Some of you guys may already be familiar with “Halina Filipina” since Esquire Magazine gave an exclusive preview of a few pages in 2012. Early this year I decided to continue developing the story and I’m glad to say that it’s officially going to be my next graphic novel after “Martial Law Babies.”
Here is a 7-page preview Enjoy!
