The series has not only found love with readers but also critical praise With Trese Volume 1’s second printing, and TRESE Volume 2: Unreported Murders hitting shelves soon, fans will have enough to get caught up on the supernatural mysteries steeped heavily in Filipino mythology.
The Trese series is helmed by Jay Oliva, director of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (2013). The series features Pretty Little Liars star, Shay Mitchell, as the voice of Alexandra Trese in English, and Liza Soberano (My Ex and Whys, Alone/Together) in Filipino.
Budjette Tan, writer/co-creator of Trese commented on the announcement:
“Thank you very much to all the new (and old) readers that picked up Ablaze’s TRESE Vol.1!”“It’s great news to us that the first printing is sold out. We hope the second printing arrives at stores soon and into the hands of new readers sooner! I hope you enjoy our tour of the dark and mythical side of Manila.”
ABLAZE Co-Founder & VP Creative/Biz Dev Rich Young says:
“With anticipation building for the TRESE Anime Netflix series, readers are jumping on board the graphic novel series, and we’ll be working to make sure copies are available to all those who want to read the amazing source material.”
When dusk arrives in the city of Manila, that’s when you become the most likely prey of the underworld. Kidnappers and thieves will be the least of your worries. 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.
