Beware the criminals that can’t be bound with handcuffs nor harmed with bullets.
Beware the ones that crave for your blood, those who hold your heart ransom, and the ones that come to steal your soul.
When crime takes a turn for the weird, the police call Alexandra Trese.
“Unreported Murders” contains four mysteries for Alexandra Trese to solve; including a murdered dwarven-creature, a police station held under siege by the undead, an elusive serial killer living in the sewers of the city, and an unassuming gated-community that’s willing to pay the price to live the privileged life.
As with Volume 1, all the stories in TRESE Vol 2: Unreported Murders feature updated/re-mastered artwork, and a substantial bonus section about the monsters of Philippine myth, as told by its creators Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo!
Writer Budjette Tan: “When my cousin from California visited us in Manila back in the 90s, he became fascinated with our stories about the aswang, duwende, and tikbalang. Years later, I sent him a copy of the original draft of TRESE and enjoyed our stories as well. I feel that our myths and folktales are truly fascinating and it’s something we can proudly share with the world.”
Artist Kajo Baldisimo: “I believe that Philippine myth, same as with other aspects of her culture like music and cuisine, is globally underrated because us Filipinos want it that way. Rather than shove it upon the world, we prefer that you discover it on your own and hopefully be surprised by it. If you don’t like it, we’ll proudly keep it to ourselves but If you love it, we’ll gladly give you more. So much more.”
