The 2021 version of award-winning Philippine graphic novel “TRESE: Murder on Balete Drive” by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo will be available at the Avenida online stores starting March 13, Nida Ramirez of 19th Avenida Publishing House said.
The Avenida edition of the first volume in the Trese series will also be carried by partner book stores and comics shops: Fully Booked, Filbar’s, Comic Odyssey, Secret HQ and MtCloud.
The book will retail for 235 pesos. It is 6×9 inches, the same size as the Visprint edition.
Tan posted, “This 2021 version contains the magnificently remastered artwork from Kajo, as seen on the US edition. It has 16 additional comic book pages showing extended action scenes and features concept sketches from 2005, when TRESE was created.”
He added, “This edition is 116 pages long, compared to the original 96-page version. [But] this edition DOES NOT contain the Professor Alexander Trese Journal pages.”
