I came in judging the book one story at a time and by the end of the second story, I was wondering how it gained a high rating in goodreads. with the conclusion of the third story, though, I began to pay more attention and backtracked on the first two. the book is both the story of the respective lead characters in the story as well as that of doorkeeper and how it all tied together was absolutely brilliant. such genius in execution and the marvelous art make this a worthwhile read.

"Things don't change right away, but the revolution... It begins with whispers and murmurs, and an old tune that won't fade."

I was a sent a copy by the authors in exchange for an honest review and I feel awful that I only got to get to it now.

The art is also great and really helped move the story forward. I think my favorite is the story set in Manila circa Martial Law.

The Doorkeeper reminded me of Dream of The Sandman, an

I’m quite upset on the outcome of this book. I really anticipated this book for a long time it piles up on my TBR, and I have a chance this month to read it.

This is my first graphic novel of Filipino authors that’s why i’m excited to read it. It focuses on the different story of each protagonist via their timeline base on the doorkeeper’s pace. Thus, the whole concept is really nice, but how I appreciate and understand the said novel is not so clear in many points.

Finished half of this while standing in Uniqlo waiting for friends. I love the concept, the art, and how fantasy and history can come together to create compelling stories.
