But this entire journey wouldn't have been this interesting if it weren't for those who've, in one way or other, helped jumpstart the engine. And here I would like to give credit where credit is due.
- My Dungeons and Dragons players, who challenged me to come up with adventures that won't bore them.
- Alex Santos, who encouraged me in 1993 to give making comics a go.
- The Harlequin Theater Guild of De La Salle University, Monique Wilson and the New Voice Company, and all the talented theater directors and actors I've had the pleasure of working with, who developed my acting skills, and unknowingly trained me in storytelling techniques.
- Vin Simbulan and Comic Quest, for allowing my work to be displayed and sold in CQ branches.
- Arnold Arre and Marco Dimaano, fellow writer-artists who know what it's like doing it all by yourself.
- Mars Ravelo and Pinky Montilla, for creating classic inspirations.
- Myrna Porciuncula, Ida Evangelista and Veronica Manzano, who rewired my language.
- Reby Gaw and David Hontiveros, my editors, who gave the Zaturnnah story and script valuable input.
- Angela San Juan, for sharing her enthusiasm towards literature, and for all those evening conversations about love and life.
- John Rae Cortes, for helping catalyze the process.
- My family, for backing me up during those months of unemployment.
- Kathlean Commercial, for giving me good printing prices during my self-publishing efforts.
- Budjette Tan, Gerry Alanguilan, Tobie Abad, and Paolo Manalo, who in the early months of Zaturnnah's debut selflessly spread the word.
- Ruey de Vera, for releasing a PDI review that caught wider attention.
- Chong Ardivilla, for releasing the first full-page Zaturnnah story in a broadsheet.
- Knowledge Power, for featuring Zaturnnah on television for the first time.
- The Manila Critics Circle, for showing me that the book was worth more than I had thought.
- Visual Print Enterprises, who accepted the book with open arms and continue to distribute the book across the country.
Zaturnnah thanks you.
