Hello Gemmies! I have an exciting new cover reveal for you today. Trese 3: Mass Murders by Budjette Tan (Author) and Kajo Baldisimo (Artist) is the third graphic novel in the Case Files of Alexandra Trese series. Trese is a best selling award winning comic series based on Filipino folklore and now a hit Netflix anime show! The show was epic and I can't wait to dive into the graphic novels now. Each volume contains a collection of several stories from the comics. Think Constantine + John Wick + Underworld, you get this wonderful mix mystery, murder, mayhem, and monsters with a kick ass heroine at the helm. If you are interested in reading the series, I've listed the reading order below to help get you started. Note: Volumes 1 and 2 are available now.
Volume One: Murder on Balete Drive
Volume Two: Unreported Murders
Volume Three: Mass Murders
12 midnight at Metro Manila. Try to remain calm as you walk down the dimly-lit streets. If you are suddenly surrounded by a pack of dogs that appear from nowhere – these might be segben tracking down their prey. Avoid the butcher’s shop that’s open at this hour. It might be a front for a gang of vampiric aswang.
Yet, there’s an even deadlier threat to the city tonight. An ancient being that thrives on violence and the thirsts for blood has found new disciples in this modern-day city.
Sacrifice has been demanded. Rituals must be executed. When crime takes a turn for the weird, the police call Trese.

1. A Private Retaliation
2. Patient 414 at Mandaluyong
