it was amazing

Dark, disturbing, unreal, and realistic at the same time.

Gritty and Noir in the extreme, which is perfectly set in Manila, a place of extremes and contrasts.

Sometimes depressing, a little patchy in quality, but overall a great page turner.

Oh, and a little treat in the middle, a TRESE graphic story - a sampler of the classic supernatural Filipino series, full of urban ghosts, vampires, aswangs and gods.

I will be looking for more by some of these authors.
